Troutlodge is likely one of the oldest aquaculture companies in North America, having been in business for over 75 years.  Troutlodge has been on the cutting edge of trout aquaculture and was the first in many areas of trout aquaculture: 

  • The first company to develop trout strains to naturally produce trout eggs every week of the year
  • The first company to sell over 500 million trout eggs in over 70 countries worldwide
  • The first company to apply both traditional and molecular genetics to vastly improve the economic performance of our trout strains.  
  • The first company to apply genomic techniques to produce bacterial cold water disease resistant strain of trout -- and these eggs are now commercially available.
  • The first company to develop all-female trout populations and sell all-female eggs with uniform and high growth rates
  • The first company to develop Troutlodge Natural Advantage all-female eggs produced naturally and which were needed for special markets
This list goes on.  Further, we demonstrated our commitment to sustainability by becoming the first aquaculture company in the U.S. to be certified as compliant with GlobalGAP aquaculture standards.  Our Board is committed to continual improvement and we regularly complete audits and take action to achieve our social and environmental goals and to improve our performance.  

All of us here at Troutlodge are excited to learn more about you, your company and your needs.  We invite you to explore our web site and to contact us should you need trout eggs or should you have any questons or need more detailed information.
