09-09-2013 | Experimental hatchery ready for next step
During the past few months the systems in the Experimental fish fry hatchery have been modified and multiple tests have been completed. This has resulted in a self supporting population of food animals, while gathering of the plankton is carried out on a daily basis.
Food animal density can be driven by changing the concentration of food algae. With a density of 5 to 8 food animals per milliliter and preservation of an excellent water quality, the timing is perfect for introducing fish larvae to culture fish fry: the ultimate goal of the Experimental hatchery.
Blue Linked expects to carry out a first trial with a culture of turbot (Scophthalmus maximus) fish larvae later this month.
