Products for Industry


From our start in 1998, the culmination of our breeding efforts has been the release of brood stock to hatcheries for propagation of seed and eyed larvae. Because progress is continuous in a breeding program, we expect to release lines yearly that are better than the previous generations. The number of brood stock released in the past five years has climbed steadily, from 100 in 2004-2005 to 500 in 2006-2007 and 7,000 in 2008-2009.
