Farmers Velsky district received the first trout fry
Farmers Velsky district received the first trout fry. Previously, the farm was purchased podsadny material from third parties. To raise their fry managed through the acquisition of incubator. For the year of 30 thousand pieces of juvenile plan to grow the adult fish, one and a half to three kilograms each. A total of approximately thirty tons of trout.
In the natural environment to achieve a similar result would require at least three years. All thanks to the economy of closed recirculation systems: special pools where fish ideal conditions. The water has an optimal temperature, saturated with oxygen, goes for regular treatment of biological and mechanical filters.
From spring on a regular basis we can give in a month and a half to two tons of fish. Plus we can grow the fry, not only for themselves but also for other fisheries in the region. Then our farmers will not have to travel to other region. Moreover, it can be not only trout, but other fish, including salmon, – said managing the economy Arkady Timokhin.
The company plans to cultivate fish in cages in natural bodies of water. And even in natural conditions it grows much longer, but the production volume will be more serious. Plus no cost for the formation of climate.
As the Minister of agriculture and trade of the Arkhangelsk region Irina Bazhanova, the development of aquaculture in the region is a priority. This year to farmers was provided by the grant.
I hope that the experience will be successful. We accompany the project. Today the region has 8 fish farms, which produces 110 tons. It is very small. The challenge is to increase fish production significantly. We now have such conditions and such opportunities. Already at the end of this year we note the growth in the range of 10-15 per cent, the Minister said.
According to Irina Baranovoj, the trend should continue. For fish farming development in the region created the most comfortable conditions. Annually by order of the government in the districts survey is conducted to reservoirs for suitability for establishment of fish farms. Already studies Onega, Kholmogorskaya, seaside and Velsky districts. Eligible areas are available to business. Velskie farmers have chosen a suitable reservoir.
