Cromaris, the leading Croatian bass and bream producer, has chosen Xelect Ltd as their provider of genetic services.
Scotland-based Xelect will provide a complete package of genetic management to the selective breeding programme in support of Cromaris’ continued advances in product quality, welfare and sustainability.
The Cromaris fish are bred at the company’s state-of-the-art hatchery in Nin, Croatia, and the partnership will allow them to take advantage of the latest technologies in selective breeding to ensure their premium product continues to excel in the European market.
Professor Ian Johnston, CEO of Xelect Ltd, said: “Xelect looks forward to developing a long-term partnership with one of Europe’s most progressive producers of sea bass and seabream”.
Dane Desnica, Cromaris Production Manager, added: “Cromaris is a leader in quality, and with this long-term partnership through genetic selection we want to further growth in quality and performance.”
