Excerpt: The overall impact of tilapias in the region can best be assessed in the following context: (a) its present and future contribution to the well-being of the society; (b) perceived impact as a group of aliens that have become an integral component of the current ichthyo-fauna of the region; (c) present and future impacts that tilapias have on biodiversity. The positive outcomes of introduced tilapias in the Asia and the Pacific are ... establishment and sustenance of capture fisheries in certain countries in the region ... an important aquaculture species group in most countries in the region, appropriate for a wide range of aquaculture operations including integrated aquaculture operations ... a source of inexpensive animal protein in developing countries; and ... a source of money through local and international trade. The above have, undoubtedly and significantly, impacted the socio-economic milieu of various sectors of the communities involved. There had been direct and indirect beneficiaries from these impacts; the former being those involved in the production, both capture and culture of the tilapias as well as aspects of marketing of the produce; the latter being the general populace through the access to an affordable animal protein source. The benefits in exact economic terms, considering the value of the produce, are difficult to estimate. The same will be true of the impact of tilapias on the overall nutritional status of rural communities, which in turn could have a profound influence on their wellbeing.
