Who could imagine that from 1 million milted eggs only 300 000 larvaes hatch out to eventually give birth to only 60 000 juveniles ?

Of high birth, the baby turbot is a gourmet at the very beginning of its life. It feeds from live preys  that are specially grown to be given it several times a day.

During the fourth month, they are sorted many times according to their and quality, aiming for a zero defect result. Homogenous batches are then formed. At this
point the juveniles weigh 8 to 12g, the weight at which they can be sent on to the growing farms.
