Food or Foe?

As entrepreneurs in several countries turn to tilapia (Tilapia spp.) aquaculture as a new food source/income, Townsville, Australia held their annual tilapia fishing competition this past weekend. The fish are considered a pest species in Australia's rivers, and are known locally by the affectionate nickname "toad of Townsville's waterway" (not a very nice thing if you're a toad I guess). Unfortunately, as reported in the Townsville Bulletin, only one tilapia was caught that day.
