What is the life story of artificially bred African catfish? What do the fish eat? How do they grow, and how long does it take for them to reach maturity?
The fish are raised in controlled climate areas, cooled or heated by ventilation systems, allowing us to adjust basic environmental factors to optimize production at all times.
We utilize the waste heat from the biogas power plant adjacent to the operation for heating and, in turn, channel the by-products produced by the fish into the biogas power plant.
The facility consists of 4 separate breeding rooms, 1 divided breeding room, and 3 divided market breeding rooms with 5 separate compartments. The fish are kept in a closed-loop system, with water leaving the fish ponds mechanically and biologically treated before being returned to the ponds, minimizing water loss per fish. Feeding is done through automatic feeders adjusting the daily feed amount based on the weight of the fish in the ponds. Each of our separate systems is equipped with sensors continuously monitoring the condition and quality of flowing water and air. In case of exceeding predetermined limits, an alarm is sent to the respective shift leader, allowing us to take immediate action to improve the lives of the fish in our ponds. Annually, 1200 tons of live fish are released.
In our fish processing plant, fresh and frozen fish products (especially fillets and bones) are produced with state-of-the-art technological methods, mostly mechanized, with minimal human intervention. Our range focuses on African catfish, produced in the adjacent factory hall, allowing us to work punctually, accurately, and precisely without access difficulties. Our operation adheres to the highest hygiene standards to ensure that our products belong to Class I, are healthy, and have impeccable nutritional value.
