We’re Full!

The hatch rate overall has been excellent and some of the spawnings have filled more than one pond.

Over the last three days we have been draining down the spawning tanks containing the fry and have been transferring them to the mud ponds which are, of course, now full of water.

That’s all seven of our nursery ponds full with Kohaku, Koromo, Shiro Utsuri and Chagoi/Ochiba. This is our first round of spawnings and when we have completed first selection in a few weeks time, we will combine some of the fry and free up three ponds so that we can do three further spawnings.
