Where life takes form
The secret of aquaculture lies within the roe, but an egg is not just an egg.
The very DNA forms what fish you end up with, whether it grows smoothly, becomes strong and tastes great.

A fish is not a fish. What makes our trout unique, is the continiuos development and innovation of the gene pool, resulting in distinct qualities.
Our two lines are both highly improved for farmed life, it grows robust, shiny and hits maternity slowly; resulting in a finer taste and an easier avoidance og disease. A roe is not simply a roe, it is 60 years of innovation.
In the tiniest of DNA, the fine detail of what’s within can be found. How it will grow and swim, what size it will be and what it will end up tasting like. All this is hidden in the genes and can be amended to better suit your farm.
One bad egg can ruin a batch, and a good one can create a greater harvest. This can mean all the difference for the end result.
It all starts within the roe.
