Substitute for Tilapia

I live in rural Australia, so the only wild fish I have access to (vs. the farmed basa and whiting at the store) is mostly reef fish since the great barrier reef is only 3 hours away. A lot of the American recipes I'd like to try have Tilapia in them though (which I've never seen here,) so I wondered if something like Barramundi, Grunter or Red Throat Emporer would be good substitutes as they're my fave fish and are easy to come by.

Chicago Deep Dish Pizza Crust Recipe - How do I get that Buttery Goodness?

So, my dough is rising at the mo but I'm panicking because after two minutes of kneading it was still an oily sticky puddle of goo. So I had to add flour to get it o resemble a ball of dough, not a whole lot though maybe just a few tablespoons. It was kneaded for a good 10 minutes at that stage. Should I call off all bets and just knead it into a thin crust? I've never mde dough or anything before so I didn't know what a biscuit-like dough should look like.
