Raceway culture of rainbow trout in Spain

The photos show the raceways in which the intensive culture of rainbow trout takes place. Each raceway measures 5 m x 50 m with a depth of one meter. The 50-g fingerlings maintained in the nursery tanks are moved to the grow-out raceways using pumps. This particular farm produces 1000 tons of trout and uses liquid oxygen while feeds its trout on high quality feed that contain 40% protein and 22% fat. Harvested fish are transported alive to the processing plants using transportation trucks.
