From just a tiny egg...
The whole process beings with high quality brood stock sourced from nature (wild, non GMO strain).
Eggs are collected and placed in incubation chambers until they hatch (about 32 hours later). At this point the fish are only larvae.
For the first half of the larvae cycle, the fish are fed a rotifer diet (that we culture ourselves). As the larvae begin to develop, they are switched over to an artemia diet.
After a certain period of time, the larvae then undergo metomorphosis and become fry. During this metamorphosis, they are weaned onto dry pelleted feeds (EWOS). The young fry are still very delicate and require a great deal of care and attention in order to successfully reach adulthood.
The hatchery facility requires constant monitoring as the slightest changes in temperature, pH, or dissolved oxygen could result in mortalities if left unchecked.
Once the fish have reached the appropriate size, they are transfered to the nearby farm where they spend the remainder of their life.

The fish spend the remainder of their life cycle on the farm - located in the remote, pristine waters of Baja California South. They are fed high quality, extruded pelleted feed until they are large enough to be harvested and sold at market.
Thanks to the low stocking density, the fish have plenty of room to move around. The strong cross sectional currents keep the fish well oxygenated. Click the video to the left to see what its like to swim with Baja Kanpachi fish.

PROCESSING & DELIVERY
When the fish reach the appropriate size (1.5 to 4.0kg), they are ready to be harvested.
Once the company recieves an order, our team pulls the fish from the water, processes it, packs it, and sends it on its way for delivery.
Each box is labeled with information including product packing date, species name, net weight, number of pieces, box number, and client number.
Throughout the delivery process, the fish is kept at 1-3 degrees Celcius (33 - 35 degrees Farenheight).
Fish are then delivered to our customers around the world. Whether it's shipped by land, air, or sea - we guarantee it will arrive fresh!
