Swinton Hatchery. Opened
January 2018, is situated on a spring water site not far from Swinton Farm.
Fertilized eggs are laid in troughs, upon hatching alevins
are revealed, these are tiny fish with a yoke sac attached to their belly, and
this is absorbed as they develop. Eventually they swim to the surface to fill
their swim bladder with air to become fry.
Fry feed on crumbs of fish food, as they grow they are moved
to bigger tanks outside were they are fed with larger fish pellets. They grow
and are known as Fingerlings.
