Our Hatchery

If you have ever operated your own hatchery, then you already know the values of having one. Our crayfish hatchery is a place for artificial hatching and rearing through the early life stages of the Redclaw Crayfish (our crayfish breed naturally). The hatchery produces larval and juveniles primarily to support the aquiculture industry where they are transferred to on-growing systems i.e. aquaponic farmers to reach harvest size. With this being a controlled environment we are able to reproduce year around.

The incubator allows us to incubate eggs independently of the mother resulting in increased survival with the craylings being in exceptionally good health. Hatchery produced craylings, when stocked, have increased survival, better growth rates and a more uniformed size. This is due to the little craylings are not burdened with fighting anything that they normally may come in contact with while still under the mothers tail.

We carefully select our breeding stock to move into spawning tanks in our sterile hatchery. Once the spawning cycle is complete and the eggs have hardened they are then stripped and put into our specially designed egg incubator. Incubation takes 3-4 weeks, and the juveniles live on their yolk sack for 10-14 days. During this time they become fully formed juvenile crayfish, and are ready to be sold immediately to other farmers and growers or stocked into our own farm for grow-out.
