I am planning on having 2 ponds, one was going to be a catfish only pond and the other would be bass/bream. I am now considering putting Tilapia with my catfish.

Just wondering if anyone would have some input on this ??

It is illegal to have tilapia in Louisiana.

It looks like it's possible to get permitting but probably out of the scope of your project

Sorry if I gave the wrong information. I chimed in bc I questioned before if tilapia would survive in Louisiana and I was told that you can't have them here.
