AQUALANDE ORIGINS, LEADER IN THE WORLD OF SELECTION OF RAINBOW TROUT (Oncorhynchus Mykiss)
20 years in Research and Development, innovation and know how :
For more than 20 years we select the strain « Aqualande Origins » in the Groupe Aqualande.
The selection center in Pissos located in the middle of the « National Parc of the Hautes Landes » develops our lines of a High Tech specific selection Prosper+ optimized by a genealogic indexation.
The work is done in partnership with Sysaaf and Inra.
8 generations are selected on Prosper+ in optimized massal
Our selection criteria and our performances :
Control of rapid growth: due to a high selection pressure on this parameter our trout perform a strong potential of growth which is worldwide recognized
12 months from the egg stage to 2,3kg at 4500°C/J
Improvement of feed conversion index :
We obtain a feed conversion index below 1,2 in conventional farming from hatching to the weight of 3kg
Control of stress resistance : Our breeders are challenged in breeding conditions on the river with validation of their behavioural skills in extreme environment
Control of technological yield: we analyse the morph type of every parent and perform ultra sound measurements in order to determine the yield after gutting and filleting. These analyses are done at special processing lines in our processing centres.
Yield after gutting: > 86% - after filleting > 61%
Control of intramuscular fat content: we select our breeders according to their
aptitude to maintain a stable level of intramuscular fat.
With almost 500 million embryonated eggs sold every year, the strain « Aqualande Origins » is the most widespread in the world
Five centres of multiplication located in France and Spain insure les production of embryonated eggs
Availability all year round:
Our strain with natural breeding in autumn is extended by photo-period and gives availability and production all year round
We propose standard all-female eggs, sterile female eggs and organic rainbow trout
We also sell eggs for Brown Trout and Char
Specialists in export:
We export 70% of our production of eggs in a perfectly controlled logistic schedule even over long distances: Poland, Germany, Italy, Turkey, Spain, Bulgaria, Iran, Morocco
