They are a invasive species but can be caught in Florida.

Wild caught tilapia is actually good. But the farm raised stuff from China has no flavor and is mushy.
Not many folks in South Florida eat any WC freshwater fish. Run off from sugar and sod farms have added mercury to the water. The levels are such, that more than an occasional meal of WC fish could cause mercury poisoning.

Like they are wild little party animals that you have to chase after, with their hootin' and hollerin' and knocking stuff over as they try to get away.

I've been watching too much Spongebob again, haven't I?

Quick little suckers. You have to move fast, and bring them another shot of tequila.
