It is difficult to predict how fast the fish will grow in your water as it is related to numerous factors such as water temperature, feed quality, feed management and general farm management etc. However, 3 large commercial farms located in Denmark, UK and South America consistently report that they are able to take the fish from egg to portion size (300-400 grams) in 8 months. These farms have 12-14 ˚C water temperature, operate strict oxygen management and use high-energy feed. (References are available on request.) For performance on your farm, you are the expert. Try our strains and be convinced!
We use large broodstock fish and consistently have some of the largest ova available in the world. The ova sizes are in the range from 6500 to 11000 per liter in the period from November to June, and in the range of 7500-13000 from July to October. Larger eggs means larger larvae. All research on animals from pigs to pigeons confirm that a larger embryo is more likely to perform well.
If you have been told size doesn’t matter – we disagree.
