Chicken of the Sea® Adds Flavored Tilapia to Pouched Seafood Success Story

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Chicken of the Sea continues to make a name for itself in pouched seafood with this week’s launch of Tilapia Select Fillets, a new line of single-serve, 3-oz. pouches containing America’s most popular white fish seasoned with the latest on-trend flavors.

The four new shelf-stable products target seafood fans looking to combine the health benefits of tilapia with an economical protein alternative in salads, sandwiches and rice bowls for lunch, snack time or dinner. The San Diego-based seafood provider is making the new line available at retailers nationwide for an SRP of $2.49.

According to a growing number of health professionals, tilapia plays an important role as the FDA looks to significantly increase recommended seafood consumption levels in the U.S. in the coming months.

“Americans simply aren’t eating enough lean seafood,” explained Serena Ball, registered dietitian and founder of TeaspoonOfSpice.com, where she helps families find shortcuts for making healthy homemade meals. “Not only is Tilapia an affordable, high-quality protein option, its high selenium content makes it essential for boosting cognitive function and enhancing the immune system. Selenium is also important in body metabolism.”

Answering the increased call for affordable seafood, Chicken of the Sea Tilapia Select Fillets represents several product firsts: the first single-serve, shelf-stable pouched tilapia; and the first line of flavored tilapia. The new line also comes on the heels of the 2014 launch of Chicken of the Sea Flavored Salmon Pouches, an industry first from the brand that introduced the world to boneless, skinless salmon in 1984.

Chicken of the Sea - Tilapia Pouches

Chicken of the Sea – Tilapia Pouches

Chicken of the Sea’s four new Tilapia Select Fillets varieties exceed industry benchmarks on likeability, flavor and purchase intent in brand testing. They include:

  • Chicken of the Sea Tilapia Select Fillets in Marinara Sauce: Sustainably caught Chicken of the Sea tilapia seasoned with a flavorful Marinara sauce in a 3-ounce single-serve pouch.
  • Chicken of the Sea Tilapia Select Fillets in Teriyaki Sesame Sauce: Sustainably caught Chicken of the Sea tilapia seasoned in a bold, tangy Teriyaki Sesame sauce in a 3-ounce, single-serve pouch.
  • Chicken of the Sea Tilapia Select Fillets in Santa Fe Sauce: Sustainably caught Chicken of the Sea tilapia seasoned with a zesty Santa Fe sauce in a 3-ounce, single-serve pouch.
  • Chicken of the Sea Tilapia Select Fillets in Yellow Curry Sauce: Sustainably caught Chicken of the Sea tilapia seasoned in savory Yellow Curry sauce in a 3-ounce, single-serve pouch.

“With the launch of the Chicken of the Sea Tilapia Select Fillets, Chicken of the Sea continues the pouched seafood innovation story it started last year with Flavored Salmon Pouches,” said Maureen McDonnell, Chicken of the Sea director of brand marketing. “Tilapia has become the new seafood of choice for discriminating seafood lovers looking for a mild-tasting, affordable white fish – and our new single-serve pouches give families four innovative new ways to enjoy the fish over rice, pasta or greens, or even straight out of the pouch.”

According to McDonnell, tilapia is now the second-most consumed seafood in restaurants and fourth-most consumed seafood at home. She says the launch coincides with anticipated new FDA advice encouraging more seafood in Americans’ weekly diet. This includes pregnant and breastfeeding women, which the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is expected to recommend eat two-to-three servings of seafood every week to encourage prenatal brain development.

Expected to be filed this year, FDA’s amended guidance follows exhaustive reviews of the positive health effects of eating fish — including the high levels of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and omega-3 fatty acids — which point to the need for expectant and nursing women to quadruple their seafood intake.

Chicken of the Sea is introducing new recipes and serving suggestion to accompany the launch of its Tilapia Select Fillets. To access the company’s growing library of recipes, serving and meal-planning suggestions for its tilapia and other seafood products, go to www.chickenofthesea.com.

Indian Government Support to Aquaculture Industry Raising Aquafeed Demand

The Indian aquaculture industry is one of the most promising industries on global scale. As Indian Carps has gained tremendous popularity among different cuisines, government is taking initiatives to further elevate the demand of Indian aquacultured species. The subsidies and assistance provided by the government for development of aquaculture has been driving its growth in the industry. Both the Central and the State Government have undertaken several policy initiatives and measures to boost the growth of fisheries industry of India.

Various initiatives like Development of Freshwater Aquaculture, implemented by Fish Farmers Development Agencies (FFDAs), is an important scheme in inland sector. In order to boost inland fish production, assistance in the form of subsidy is given to the fish farmers for construction of new ponds, renovation of ponds and tanks, on first year inputs (fish seed, fertilizers, manures, etc.), integrated fish farming, running water fish culture, establishment of fish seed hatcheries and fish feed mills, etc. Hence, the fish farmers are motivated towards culturing the fishes and acquiring the above benefits, thus demanding more aquafeed. Also, based on the expected growth in the aquaculture industry in the country, the demand for aquafeed is bound to increase in the future.

The report “India Commercial Aquafeed Market Outlook 2018” provides an indepth and rational analysis of the commercial aquafeed market in India. It covers market forecast till 2018 for the production of major aquacultured finfishes like carps, tilapia and catfishes, along with aquacultured shellfish. Since the aquaculture production is expected to increase in the future, the production and consumption of commercial aquafeed is also bound to increase. Thus, the report also covers commercial aquafeed market forecast till 2018, which has been further fragmented into commercial finfish feed and commercial shrimp feed market.

The forecast for production and consumption of commercial finfish (i.e. carps, tilapia & catfish) feed have been drawn till 2018. A section about the major ingredients used in commercial finfish feed and their inclusion rate to generate a brief understanding of the kind of ingredients that will be in demand has also been provided in the report. Further, an overview of the drivers and the government initiatives, which have the capacity to put the industry on a growth trajectory, has also been given. We have also identified the challenges faced by the industry along with a brief overview of the FCR of various finfishes. The report also covers business overview of various well known industry players.

Tilapia Foods and Feeding

Tilapia feed on a wide range of food which makes them a very favorable fish to grow. Juvenile tilapia are omnivorous, meaning that they are opportunistic feeders that ingest both plants and animals without specialization. Adult tilapia are primarily herbivorous (vegetarians).

Tilapia can be raised successfully using the natural food that is available in farm ponds and other water bodies. The nutritional material in farm ponds can be enhanced with the addition of manures. Organic fertilizers introduce detrital material and promote the growth of plankton and algae. These materials can be consumed by tilapia and provide nutrition for their growth. Rural farmers using organic fertilizers can grow tilapia fingerlings to marketable size in 6 months.

Tilapia diets show differences depending on their life stage. The table outlines some of the dietary differences between fry, fingerlings, and adults.

Fry – newly hatched tilapia, 0.25 to 0.75 inches long Detritus & Neuston (organisms   that float on the top of water)
Fingerlings (Juvenile) 0.75 to 1.5 inches long Detritus & Periphyton (a complex mixture of algae,   cyanobacteria, heterotrophic microbes, and detritus that are attached to   submerged surfaces in aquatic ecosystems)
Adults Algae, bacteria, detritus, duckweed, other plants

Because tilapia feed on food sources that are lower on the food chain, they do not have issues with mercury concentration like higher-level predatory fish, such as swordfish, pike, halibut, and albacore. Tilapia have the potential to be a highly sustainable food resource.

The table outlines some of the differences in dietary habits for popular farmed tilapia groups.

Nile tilapia Phytoplankton and detritus
Mozambique tilapia Vegetation and bottom algae
Blue tilapia Zooplankton and detritus

When raising tilapia in tanks or intensive recirculating systems, natural foods will need to be supplemented or replaced with formulated foods. Newly hatched fry require smaller food particles. They can be fed a specially formulated powder that can meet their nutritional requirements at this crucial stage of growth. Fingerlings can be fed larger, formulated foods that contain digestible proteins and fats to promote growth.

As tilapia increase in size, they can be feed a pelleted diet that contain key nutrients such as proteins (amino acids), fats, minerals, and vitamins. Tilapia raised in tanks cultures benefit from having a consistent diet compared to tilapia that depend on natural foods in native water bodies.
