Intensive and sustainable culture of the freshwater species tencii

Objective

Many regions of Europe have a continental aquatic medium, very appropriated for the culture of autochthones cyprinid fishes, as tench. This fish is appreciated in Europe as a refined dish in the restaurant, a piece of angling and an ornamental fish. In the food market, it has an important potential as a consumer-friendly product, due to its excellent flavour. Tench has been cultivated by natural reproduction system in the ponds of Central and Eastern Europe for more than 500 years.

The natural reproduction cycle of tench makes this fish not available in the market all along the year, because of its limited spawning period, between May and August. Moreover, its semi-intensive production cannot avoid that:
1. large number of them die in the first year,
2. growing is very slow at first, and
3. they spawn for the first time not before their forth year.
