It stands by the
river Tolminka in Tolmin itself. Together with the construction of
the fish farm the small hydro-plant SENG Nova Gorica was also repaired.
Both objects function together, the water from the Tolminka is used
first for fish farming and then to produce electricity.
work at fish farm
is a torrential river, which is why we have built a number of filtration
stations to clear leaves and other debris from the water used in
the fish farm.
years old juvenile from fish farm
of the Tolminka varies from 5 to 13°C. At normal operational capacity
150 l/s of water run through the fish farm. The water is cleaned
in our own treatment plant.
The fish farm
has a total of 19 pools (230m2) for raising year-old
trout and two canals 80m long and 3.5m to 4m wide for raising marble
trout for breeding. We have sufficient capacity to breed 100,000
year-old trout, and in the breeding canals we have room for 500
adult marble trout under conditions which are very similar to those
found in the wild.
needed to breed marble trout is different from that used to breed
other species of trout because of the marble trout’s special requirements.
This is also the reason for the unusual appearance of the fish farm,
as the pools and canals are covered.
