English term or phrase:hatchery
hatchery: not necessarity difficult, but my knowledge of fish isn't exactly technical.
Explanation: My shorter Harrap's says:
hatchery n Agr couvoir m, couveuse f; (in fish farming) appareil m à éclosion.
My 4 volume Harrap's suggests:
trout hatchery, alevinier à truites
My suggestion is: éclosoir
Tthe French-English part of the larger Harrap's says 'hatchery' but nothing more.
The Petit Larousse does not mention the word but rather écloserie and defines it as follows:
Etablissement d'aquaculture destiné à la reoduction des géniteurs et à l'obtention de jeunes larves et d'alevins
