Nr. 1 / September 2014
On Wednesday 3rd September the first brood fish for the egg season 2014/2015 were stripped at AquaGen Tingvoll. This is about the same time as previous years and will provide for the delivery of early eggs starting in the first half of October (weeks 43-44). Early indications are very positive as our brood fish this year are generally a little larger than last year and have had very low mortality and good health in the period up to stripping.
AquaGen provides ongoing information to subscribers about the status of salmon- and trout egg production through the publication of AquaGen EGG UPDATE.
The eggs which are produced are a result of breeding and genetics, and also of the production of brood fish which has begun 3-4 years before. In the course of this period the brood fish are managed so that the client receives eggs at the agreed-upon time, with the proper quality and quantity.

Nr. 3 / 2013
During the early egg period, that is those delivered between weeks 43 to 50 inclusive, AquaGen delivered 83 million salmon eggs to the Pic-2Norwegian market. From these shipments we have the results of 29 “reception controls” comprising a volume of 64 million eggs.
Nr. 2 / 2013
At our site at Tingvoll the first broodstock were stripped on Wednesday 4 September, which is historically early. We are therefore already well placed to deliver large volumes from week 43-44 in 2013. This is important as a large number of farmers now require an early egg intake for production of good quality S0 smolt of the correct size.
