Welcome to the W.A.T.E.R. facility, Cohort 6!
PAES W.A.T.E.R. has stocked Cohort 6, Wednesday June 21, 2017. We have received 4,200 fingerlings of GIFT strain Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus. They will have an average weight of 1.5 grams and should reach market size (720 grams) in approximately 130 days. We expect to harvest the crop in November.
They began their morning with a gradual entrance into their new home and shortly after, they were fed by our aquaculture expert, Brian Catanzaro.
