Nireus, Greece (1)
Recognizing a steady supply of consistently high-quality juveniles as a crucial strategic business factor, Greek seabass and seabream producer Nireus invested in proficient hatchery units focused on nutrition and health control.
All operations are supervised centrally by – among others – a dedicated fish health manager who needs to be reported to whenever even a slight irregularity is detected.
The hatchery stage has such an impact on the entire production cycle, that even the smallest error has to be ruled out.
