Broodstock Holding

Controlled-environment broodtank systems presently include twelve 2.1-m³ units, six 4.7-m³ units, one 10.7-m³ unit and one 16.7-m³ unit. Broodtanks are supported by biofilters to allow recirculation of water. Timer-controlled lighting and heat pumps are used to manipulate photoperiod and temperature to simulate artificial seasons.
