Officers Stripping Eggs at a Hatchery

We manage two main hatcheries; from which we produce fingerlings from our own brood stock. We supply fingerlings to farmers all over the country.

Our Station Hall. Perfect for Conducting Trainings

We have an excellent hall that we allow different stakeholders to rent at affordable rates.

Growers Feeds Produced Onsite

We also excel in the production of trout feeds, which we sell to trout farmers countrywide.

Outside the Eatery and Market Outlet at Our Station

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.

Gutted and Cleaned Table Size Trout

We grow out some of our fingerlings to table size fish, which we sell at our rearing farm to local consumers.
