Landcatch provides genetic breeding programme support to five Atlantic Salmon breeding programmes around the world and has experience with other species such as Rainbow Trout and Coho Salmon.
Landcatch Geneticists work with their customers’ management teams to advise on design and development of breeding programmes to meet the needs and requirements of their businesses. Customised technical packages can include genotyping; data analysis and management; and customised breeding programme design.
Landcatch eggs are bred for continuously improved disease and sea-lice resistance in growing salmon, and with 100 per cent parental testing for Infectious Pancreatic Necrosis (IPN). Supplied from 2-3 sea winter stocks, they can be tailor-selected for factors including IPN QTL. They are BKD and SRS certified, and have GlobalGap and CoGP accreditation.
Our smolts are all grown in isolated, land-based production sites in Argyll, Wester Ross and Inverness. They are Freedom Foods, CoGP and GlobalGap-compliant and can be supplied at 80-100g from August to May (or July if we have sufficient notice).
