Description: Integrated company producing P. stylirostris.
Service Provided: Provided a technical audit of the farm, the broodstock program, the maturation facility and the hatchery. Production was complicated by contractual issues with the suppliers of the broodstock that effectively limited productivity and a number of other issues including environmental and water quality issues. Survivals in the hatchery were very low and the broodstock were not being produced in a bio-secure manner. Regional NGOs were forcing the company to spend large amounts of money to satisfy inane requirements that ensured that the company could not operate profitably.
