|Eggs are stripped from a female common carp of the broodstock|
Our common carp broodstock has finally matured. The first batch of eggs was stripped from the fish on March 7th. The eggs were fertilized with freshly stripped sperm and the first larvae hatched on March 10th. The broodstock is now ready for experiments – at least a year ahead of its sexual maturation in pond farms. It can be stimulated to spawn year-round and larvae can be produced for experiments whenever we want. Thanks to Balázs Csorbai for his assistance in the induced spawning.
