The Hatchery of the fish farm
The hatchery of Jambo Fish Western (K) Ltd.’s fish farm in Mumias is dedicated to produce high quality African catfish fingerlings and all male Tilapia fingerlings (NMT™).
The African Catfish strain used originates from Fleuren & Nooijen BV in The Netherlands. The Dutch strain is the result of more than 30 years of selection to develop a fast and efficient growing, stress resistant fish together with a high meat yield.
The Tilapia strain used is the Til Aqua Silver NMTTM of Til Aqua International BV. The broodstock of this strain produced Natural Male Tilapia with a male ratio of >95% without the use of hormones. This is achieved with YY-technology.
The hatchery is designed and constructed by our Dutch partner Fleuren & Nooijen BV. The hatchery consists of several distinct systems to support each life stage of the African catfish fingerlings and Tilapia fingerlings. The different sections of the hatchery consist of small individual recirculation aquaculture systems (RAS) (incubation system, hatching system, fingerling system, juvenile system and brood stock system) enabling the control of both the quality and temperature of water.
We are accredited by the Fisheries Department of Kenya as an official supplier for African catfish fingerlings and Tilapia fingerlings.
