After reading all these ridiculous "health warnings" I have one thing to say. Life causes death, illness, allergies etc. We can't live in a sterile world. Eat, Drink, Enjoy your counter tops and be merry. Who knows how long any of us have.

any wild caught fish is better for you than farm raised.

not surprising. You simply cannot feed animals things they would not eat in the wild and expect them to be healthy and beneficial to eat!

Please do not give up on tilapia! I am a student of aquaculture and have done extensive research to the claims made against farm raised fish and there is a lot of misinformation out there. Farm raised fish are healthy, and in many cases safer from toxins and environmental contaminants than fish caught in the wild. I know where the water and the food nutrients that the fish I raise come from, do you know what kind of waters your fish have swum through in the wild or what kind of contaminated food they be eating? Just food for thought.
