Fingerlings are fed with 5-8 times depending on the water temperature.
From the fingerlings reaching to 30-40 gr weight after a great attention, sea breams are transported to 30-50 meter-dia-HDPE cages equipped with special nets for them. And then, they are sent to growing plants. This process is performed to remove the size difference, which may be come out in the future, and to provide a healthy growing.
