What We Do
We manage two main hatcheries; from which we produce fingerlings from our own brood stock. We supply fingerlings to farmers all over the country.
We have an excellent hall that we allow different stakeholders to rent at affordable rates.
We also excel in the production of trout feeds, which we sell to trout farmers countrywide.
We have an excellent market outlet located at the station, where consumers get to sample what our station has to offer. You really should try us.
We grow out some of our fingerlings to table size fish, which we sell at our rearing farm to local consumers.
We allow for educational visits at our facility. We also offer recreational services; providing grounds for weddings, picnics and other ceremonies.
