Spawns are collected from the broodstock tanks and moved to an area inside our production facility called the Hatchery.
Here the larvae are fed a steady diet of zooplankton (usually rotifers and Artemia), until they can be trained to eat standard frozen and prepared foods. Each step in the process is carefully designed to produce the healthiest possible juveniles.
Did you know…?
- Our hatchery deals with special challenges presented by different types of eggs, including floating eggs, egg balls, and demersal eggs.
- From the time they are spawned, it takes anywhere from 1 to 13 days for the eggs to hatch.
