Improved technology for trout farming in Mexico

Trout cultivation under controlled conditions by aquaculture techniques offers a positive horizon in Mexico, as it is a fish with high nutritional qualities that has a large market and great demand from consumers, commercial chains and restaurants.

This was stated by the director of special projects of the Aquaculture Center "El Pedregal", Salvador Escalante Coronel, researcher specialized in trout farming.

With support from the National Commission of Aquaculture and Fisheries (CONAPESCA) for the development of various projects, this aquaculture farm located in Texcaltitlán, in the state of Mexico, is today one of the best equipped with cutting-edge technology in the country.

In this aquaculture center about 70 tonnes of trout are produced annually, and it is expected to reach 100 tonnes to satisfy the growing demand of the market.

Escalante Coronel stressed that El Pedregal is a production center integrated by sport fishing, trout farming and processing areas that give added value to its production. In addition, it has the best technology in the country to transform the product and achieve greater conservation, quality and shelf life.

The farm operates with a system of oxygen nanobubbles - the latest in technology - that allows the water where the trout is grown to keep oxygenated, which favors a better development of this species.

With the waste generated during the growth and processing of the trout, organic compost is prepared for the production of "kale" lettuce.

The trout are raised from high quality eggs imported from Denmark.
