Thanks! As I indicated, I was simply guessing from the word structure. There was not enough context for me to add details like that. I\'m more familiar with the Danish setup. You learn a lot from KudoZ!

I think that Roald sums it up nicely- but thanks for trying!

neutral  Roald Toskedal: I guess this isn't 'fish farming' per se, it is part of a cultivating programme for specific rivers/lakes, using the particular breed of fish from that river/lake, whereas fish farming entails breeding of fish from any genetic heritage.

fish hatchery


Explanation:
Looked up a few possibilities and came across "fish hatchery" on Google. Then looked at the definition and it seems to fit (the document I'm working on which coincidentally contains the same word).
Example: www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/fish hatchery
