Lake Harvest was formed in 1997 to produce high quality tilapia for the European and Southern Africa markets. Our fish farms are situated within a National Park on Lake Kariba in Zimbabwe – Africa’s inland sea of pristine water. This lake is protected from heavy industry, giving our fish the benefit of a natural habitat, surrounded by spectacular scenery and wildlife.
We ensure the high quality of our fish through a combination of sustainable farming techniques and state of the art equipment. We take great pride in attention to detail – and ensure complete control of the process from feed ingredients and breeding through to delivery of the delicious fish fillets.
Lake Harvest offers unrivalled traceability and consistent food security. We offer a fish that has no additives, preservatives, GMOs or antibiotics – which is why Lake Harvest Tilapia can be found in the finest haute cuisine restaurants. Tilapia, we believe, is the fish of the future – and Lake Harvest will help to ensure its success as a sustainable, high nutritional fish for generations to come.
Preserving our natural environment is at the heart of our vision and we believe that the natural rearing of tilapia forms an integral part of a sustainable future for the fish industry. Tilapia is the fish of the future.
We believe that our unique placement in Lake Kariba enables us to be the blueprint for fresh water aquaculture. We also believe that people and animals should be treated with dignity and respect and our company policies revolve around this philosophy.
