Trout farm investment appraisal

The survey found the farm to have considerable potential for growth of rainbow and brown trout. An excellent water supply and good husbandry practices had ensured long-term disease-free production for many years. Good site characteristics and production and grow-out pool lay-out suggested further potential for a more ambitious project, although the report also highlighted potential threats that should be over-come through alterations in site design.
