Peixe Vivo, Brazil
Seeing the rapid surge of tilapia farming in the Santa Fé do Sul region in Brazil, Emerson Esteves recognized the need to produce high quality PL to support business activity in the area. He founded Peixe Vivo: a medium-scale hatchery specialized in tilapia.
A close eye for detail, controlled hygiene and temperature conditions and a thorough perfection of feeding technologies led him to obtain an impressive 99% survival rate and a solid reputation in the local market.
Closely controlled conditions and a thorough perfection of feeding technologies eliminate risks in the fragile hatchery stage.
Owner Peixe Vivo
Applying the same meticulous eye for detail to every single one of the company’s 120 hatchery tank, Peixe Vivo reaches an impressive survival rate of no less than 99%.
Peixe Vivo manages 5 hectares of nursery ponds. In some of those the company is experimenting with greenhouse techniques to get better control of water temperatures.
Rapidly building a reputation for high quality and robust fry, Peixe Vivo’s current annual production of 1 million juveniles very easily finds it way to tilapia farms nearby.
EDUCATING LOCAL FARMERS IN EFFECTIVE FEED PROTOCOLS
On top of running his own seabass hatchery and farm, Mr Suthi Mahalao, advises local farmers in his area on how to benefit from the added value of INVE products and protocols.
SUPPLYING OVER 100 LOCAL FEED STORES

ECONOMIES OF SCALE IN SHRIMP PRODUCTION
Viet-Uc, run by entrepreneur Van Thanh Luong, has set up the world’s largest shrimp hatchery producing 15 billion of postlarvae annually.
THE LARGEST FRESH WATER AVAILABILITY IN THE WORLD
Almost 12% of the world’s fresh water supply is held in the river basins of Brazil. A new generation of entrepreneurs uses this opportunity to develop the production of tilapia fish.
TRAINING LOCAL PEOPLE INTO A KNOWLEDGEABLE WORKFORCE
The Bomar Pescados shrimp farms in the north east of Brazil employ over 500 people. One of the key success factors is the on-the-job training of a skilled workforce.
BETTER SURVIVAL AND LARGER PL
The Fitmar shrimp hatchery in Mazatlan, Mexico, works closely with INVE Aquaculture to optimize nutrition and health protocols. This is results in larger post larvae and better survival.
99% SURVIVAL IN FRESHWATER HATCHERY
Although tilapia is a relatively new species as far as professionalized hatching is concerned, Peixe Vivo achieves impressive results based on rigorous methods and techniques.
TOTAL INTEGRATION AND AUTOMATION
Nordic Halibut installed a 360° quality control system including environmental studies, water quality monitoring and automated feeding technologies.
INVESTING IN THE FISH PRODUCTION OF TOMORROW
