Q: Are you federally certified?

A: Yes. Our eggs and fingerlings have been federally certified and disease-free for more than 15 years.

Q: What is difference between rainbow trout and steelhead?

A: There is very little difference as they originate from the same family. Steelhead are typically raised in a saltwater environment to a larger size (i.e. four lbs. / 1.8 kg or more). Rainbow trout are grown in freshwater to a smaller size (about two lbs./ 0.9 kg).

Q: Where did your strain of rainbow trout originate?

A: The Lyndon strain is believed to be derived from both steelhead and inland forms of rainbow trout with fish originating from a private hatchery strain (McClaren) in the United States in the 1930s. There is also a mix of local Ontarian strains at its inception in the province in the ‘50s (Ferguson et al. 1993; Aquaculture 117: 237-259).

Q: What are the traits that you are selecting for?

A: Our breeding program currently selects for the following traits:

  • Growth rate
  • Late maturation
  • Disease resistance
  • Egg quality
Q: How do you ship your eggs?

A: Our eggs are shipped in custom-made styrofoam boxes which are designed to carry up to 150,000 eggs per box.
