For the production of very large, sterile (never maturing) rainbow trouts in freshwater, triploid eggs are offered. These fish will continue to grow throughout their life without the characteristics and setback of maturation, allowing the fish farmer to produce (almost) whatever size of fish he desires.
AquaSearch triploids are all produced by high pressure technology to reduce the frequency of deformities, otherwise seen in triploid salmonids, to an absolute minimum.
Fish farmers should be aware that triploid trout generally requires more stable oxygen conditions and slightly higher oxygen levels than conventional trout. Also the triploid trout is more sensitive to stress and handling especially in its later life stages. But if the fish farmer takes his precautions and respects the special requirements of the triploids, he will be rewarded with a fish that can be grown to very large size in excess of 8 kg in less than three years if conditions are right.
