In 2006, France Turbot decides to use its hatchery expertise in a new area, oyster farming, and developed a business producing diploid and triploid oyster seed.
From spat to pre-fattened juveniles, a wide range suitable for all mesh sizes :
We have two hatcheries and two nurseries dedicated to producing oyster spat.
Strict health control systems are implemented in the hatchery in terms of water quality control as well as working methods in order to provide a stress-free environment for the oysters.
In the hatchery, specialized teams ensure :
Our top priority is to produce superior quality larva at the end of this stage.
Then the spats are transfered in nurseries. The two nurseries are composed of outdoor basins supplied with water of the sea surrounding Ile de Noirmoutier island. This rich water promotes spat growth in their naturalenvironment. Outdoor phytoplankton farms provide additional food. The spat are graded and selected throughout the growth period.
- Bleu Thau Mat, France Turbot’s spat distributor in the Mediterranean, also offers pre-fattened oysters.
- France Turbot, Guieau and Caliplast pooled their expertise and created the company F.T.G.C. to develop and sell net cages to be used at sea.
