tilapia: a type of fish, but which one?
Grégoire Thygesen
Local time: 19:40
French translation:Tilapia
Explanation:
On utilise le plus souvent le nom générique latin, parfois "tilapie" (au masculin dans les deux cas). LGDT donne uniquement "tilapia". Parfois "perche du Nil" chez les poissonniers chics.
