Trout (speckled trout) production is done using pedigree
strains kept on site at the station. Spawning takes place
in autumn (October) and they are hatched in December. The
young fish develop within a closed circuit, meaning the
water is recirculated, with both mechanical and organic
In spring, in the month of April, small
fish measuring 1½ to 2 inches are transferred to
an outside pond so that they will continue to grow.
The fish are marketed throughout their growth
period, in accordance with customer requirements. Most however
will be kept for a period of 2 years, until they reach from
9 to 12 inches in length.
ponds are fed using a gravity system, starting from a brook
fed by a natural spring. The fish are thus raised in conditions
similar to those found in a natural lake, thus permitting
a better maintenance of their immune system.
Salmon Trout also feed themselves from nature,
thus making them better "biters".
