Oreochromis mossambicus (Mozambique Tilapia)

We netted this one and about a 100 others on the Touw river at Wildernis. I have added them to the 12 or so that I already have in the pond in the backyard.

(Edit 11 May 2014 - Some of the Tilapia I still have in my tanks carry these blood lines. The Touw River is even cooler than Port Elizabeth's river's so I suspect the fish we netted there are naturally selected for cold water tolerance)
