Introduction to the Tilapia incubation system 6 jars

Tilapia eggs will be transferred to one of the six Mc Donald hatching jars of the tilapia incubation system plug and play. Each hatching jar has a volume of 8 litres at a density of max. 20,000 eggs per jar, resulting in a total density of 120,000 eggs per cycle. Please check out our smaller tilapia incubation system (with three hatching jars) if you require a system for smaller production. After a period of 3 to 5 days the eggs will hatch. After hatching the yolk sac fry will flow out of the jar into a white reception tank. After complete yolk sac absorption, the fry should be transferred to the tilapia fingerling systems.
