Growing Coho Salmon
Why grow coho? If you are growing Atlantic salmon, you may want something that grows faster and is resistant to ISA and sea lice. If you are growing trout, you may want to diversify into a niche market.
HACI can help you with all of your coho salmon production planning, from egg to market.
HACI is the egg sales representative for Northern Divine Aquafarms Ltd, which is the only place to source your "Target Marine" strain of coho salmon eggs. Note that we receive a commission from Northern Divine Aquafarms for this. You can check out their website. The eggs are certified disease free by the Canadian authority (CFIA). They are available year round. They are monosex female. Their growth is amazingly fast.
The only way to go
Significant advantages to farmers include larger smolt size potential, twice as much roe for salmon caviar production resulting in increased revenue, and no precocious maturation of males allowing for production in RAS and resulting in decreased costs.
Certified Disease Free
To protect your farm
These eggs are safe to bring to your farm. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) carries out the disease screening and auditing to certify the coho as disease free for global shipping. Eggs can be shipped to Asia, Europe, Africa, North and South America.
Year Round Availability
For early and multiple inputs
Northern Divine Aquafarm's controlled broodstock systems allow for egg production in all seasons, offering farmers multiple inputs throughout the year. This also offers the advantage of earlier eggs, allowing for a larger smolt resulting in earlier harvests or larger fish at harvest.
