Introduction to African catfish broodstock

African catfish Broodstock of our Dutch strain is produced constantly and is made available for hatcheries throughout the world.

Ready-to-spawn Dutch Strain broodstock is transported either in live tanks, for destinations in a radius of 800 kms from the Aquaculture ID hatchery, or packed in plastic bags, with water and pure oxygen, in polystyrene boxes. The fish is delivered at sizes ranging from 1,5 to 2,5 kgs.

Aquaculture ID can supply Heterobranchus longifilis broodstock to hatcheries planning to produce Hybrid catfish. The broodstock is also supplied at 1,5 to 2,5 kgs, but need to reach a weight of at least 5 kgs before being ready to spawn. These fish are shipped identical to Dutch Strain African catfish broodstock.

Aquaculture ID will arrange transport of the broodstock either using our own vehicle (maximum range 800 kms from the Aquaculture ID hatchery) or to destinations around the world using air transport. All transports are accompanied with the necessary documents (TRACES, Health Certificate, Certfifcate of Origin, etc.). The Aquaculture ID hatchery is certified by the Dutch Veterinary Authorities and has excellent contacts with the major animal transport agents in the Netherlands.
