Spring is on the way, and this means that the last few weeks have been spent reconfiguring the hatchery and getting the broodstock ready at the David Fincham Aquaculture farm in Johannesburg.  During a recent training week – 19-22nd August the first fry and eggs were harvested.  It is always a remarkable experience for the students who have never witnessed the process to see, be involved and to witness the miracle of new life. It takes between 8 and 10 days for the eggs to become viable fry, in the correct conditions in the hatchery.
