Can you imagine what it is like to feed tens of thousands of hungry mouths? Ask Paul and Emerson in our hatchery, they are working around the clock to keep the hatchlings fed – which are called fry at this stage in their lifecycle!
As they grow, the bigger fish eat the smaller ones – so a lot of work will go into grading the fingerlings according to their size. This happens every few days once they reach about 20mm in size.
Make sure you visit the Les Wilson Barramundi Discovery Centre in 2019 to see our ‘big girls’ – the broodstock over 1m in size!
