Distribuzione originaria di Oreochromis mossambicus secondo IUCN

 

 

Specie originaria dell'Africa meridionale: corso inferiore dei fiumi Zambesi e Shiré, pianure costiere dal delta dello Zambesi all'Algoa Bay. giunge a sud fino al fiume Brak, nella zona orientale della Provincia del Capo e nel bacino del fiume Limpopo nel Transvaal. Ampiamente allevata in acquacoltura, è stata immessa, volontariamente od accidentalmente, nelle acque interne di molti paesi, creando spesso problemi all'ecologia autoctona. In Europa le tilapie vengono regolarmente allevate per scopi alieutici ed alimentari e spesso ne viene tentata l'acclimatazione (Belgio, Slovacchia, Germania, Olanda, Russia ecc.). In Italia la specie pare sia acclimatata in alcuni corsi d'acqua del mantovano, alimentati dagli scarichi caldi delle centrali energetiche, ed in alcune sorgenti termali di Toscana e Lazio, ma le segnalazioni devono essere confermate. Altre fonti riportano di acclimatazione di O. mossambicus nel bacino del Mar Nero.
