The Tilapia fish has its origin in Africa and is now cultivated throughout the world – it is produced on a massive commercial scale and is also referred to as the “Aquatic Chicken”

The purpose of the Ntunda Tilapia Festival is to promote the consumption of this healthy protein source. The festival coincides with Africa Day; the aim is to celebrate the origin of the specie and to bring together the African people from various walks of life.
