Hello all,

I have a friend that has been searching for quite sometime to get her hands
on these fish. I have read that they are originally from African and have
been introduced into the US here and life all over the nation. My question
is, has anyone ever collected any of these Mossambicus (Mozambique tilapia)
in a Red or Orange variety (the regular variety is black and green)? I am
curious as to where these red/orange variants are being caught, if at all in
the US.

Thank you,
