After the Resurrection of Jesus and before the blessing of the Holy Spirit, the disciples commenced fishing again. Jesus appeared to them and they ate fish together. What was this fish that was so popular that they could make a business from catching? Those were probably tilapia, ‘St Peter’s fish’ (or mango tilapia, Sarotherodon galilaeus). And today, we see how a common fish that was eaten in Galilee can also provide healing benefits that were not realized for many years.
