At Babylon fish farm we are one of only a few sites in the country that breed and grow our own stock fish. We spawn artificially and raid the small fry in our own hatchery before transferring to stock ponds for on growing.
We use a very high quality feed that insures that the fish you buy are in the best condition possible when you receive your order, in fact it has been know that the fish we deliver to have been caught only a few minutes after the introduction!! That shows the small amount of stress put on the fish during transport.
We move out stock fish in a purpose built trailer with plastic insulated tanks to insure the correct temperature. At the right time of you depending on species we can move tons of fish from Kent to lands end and john o groats!!!! With only a small delivery charge to help with the diesel costs.
We breed all our fish on site from eggs collected from our own F1 stock fish. When we express our eggs we collect only from our best quality breeding stock.
We have a fully equipped hatchery where we carry out all stages of fish growth. Our hatching process in monitored to ensure that all the eggs are nurtured to provide the best quality fry.
After hatching the fish are held in purpose built bio secure tanks until they are ready to be released into the stock ponds. At each process the health of the fish is our number one priority.
Our juvenile fish are released into our stream fed stock ponds; they have both a natural diet and are also supplemented with a high quality feed.
