Broodstock review

On Friday December 9th, we reviewed our common carp broodstock. Fish were harvested from their tank, anesthetized, their PIT tags were scanned and then their standard length and weight was measured and their sex determined. The goal of this review was to check their growth since June as well as to determine which individual is ready for spawning. Most fish have doubled their size and males already have sperm. We hope to attempt the first spawning in February.

The sex of fish was checked by the presence of sperm

All fish are weighed and measured before sex determination
