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
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.
