Not only is this the first time JSS has produced so many fish in one year, but also the first time this quantity of juvenile cod has been produced in the EU. Another 450,000 fish are set to be put in the sea before the end of January.
This level of production has been achieved in advance of full development of the hatchery, to be completed later this year. All codlings are bred from selected brood stock at the world’s largest dedicated organic cod hatchery.
Their brand NO CATCH…JUST COD is certified by the Organic Food Federation and recommended by Greenpeace. JSS’s hatchery & research manager Lesley McEvoy said: “Producing our one millionth cod for the year highlights the quality of our production process and commitment of our team.
