THE TROUT HATCHERY
The Trout Hatchery in the Netherlands is a trout hatching and nursery facility set in the pittoresque surroundings (2.5 ha) of an old Saxon farmhouse (dating back to 1667 but now beautifully renovated and furnished in traditional English style) in the village of Stegeren near Ommen and close to the Vecht river.
The hachery is owned by Graham P. Oxtoby, an Englishman who settled in the Netherlands in 1971. Traditional methods are applied at the hatchery to breed rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) and brown trout (Salmo trutta) from ova (eggs) obtained from a sturdy stock of the fish that originate from Denmark and the UK. It is also the first hatchery in the Netherlands to produce brown trout, a species native to the UK and other parts of Europe and which is considerably larger than rainbow trout.
