Desert Springs Tilapia raises its fish in plastic lined ponds filled with warm, natural spring water. Since the water is salty, Desert Springs tilapia have a clean, ocean-fresh flavor. The company has made a solid commitment to environmentally friendly policies. All water circulated through the ponds and raceways is used as a natural fertilizer used to grow alfalfa, Bermuda grass hay, barley oats and olive trees. Desert Springs Tilapia is committed to recycle, reuse and restore resources.
