Microbaq F

In salmon’s intensive cultivation

Getting good results in sea water (fattening stage) depends, considerably, on the quality of the smolt that start said stage.

Thus, getting high quality smolt is a relevant aim in fresh water stage. This way, most of salmons will survive, they will grow up correctly and an optimal conversion of the food will be possible after having been moved to the sea.

To get a smolt that has all theses features, it is necessary to focus on optimizing the productive cycle, and it is basic to choose the right feeding program.

Dibaq has different energetic level fodders that will be used depending on the cultivation policy in each fattening centre.

Pigmentation in this species, whether it is because of its economic cost or its influence on the final product, it is a main factor. Because of this, Dibaq has different pigmentatins plans that guarantee development in the forseen terms of the colour levels that the market points out.

  •  Distribution: In the North Atlantic Ocean. Its Western limits are the North of Portugal, the Cantabrian Sea and the Cape Cod. Nowadays, there are salmons all over the world due to introductions.
  •  Feeding: It eats insects, mollusks, crustaceans and fishes in the rivers. In the sea, it eats aquids, fishes and crustaceans (this explains its colour). In their way to rivers to spawn, they do not eat.
  •  Fishing: In the sea, it is fished with encircling net and trawl. In rivers, it is fished with reed.
  •  Breeding: In cages. There is a project to breed them in ponds.
  •  Repro: They spawn in rivers at the end of Autum. Many of them die after spawning. Those who survive are called ‘salmons after spawning’ and they can spawn again.
