Individually temperature incubators for rainbow Trout




The photo shows a row of individually-controlled incubators for rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). This unique incubator’s establishment enables the control on egg development and so the hatching time in each individual incubator bearing in mind that fish and so embryos are cold blooded animals whereas warmer temperature would speed the rate of development and hatching while lower temperature would delay it.  Doing so would enable the matching of hatchery production and market demand.
