Croatia’s Cromaris has hired Scotland’s Xelect Ltd to render genetic services for the bream and bass producer. Under the agreement Xelect will provide complete genetic management service to Cromaris’ selective breeding program.

Cromaris’ fish are bred at the company’s state-of-the-art hatchery in Nin, Croatia. The agreement will give Cromaris access to the latest technologies in selective breeding that Xelect offers and “ensure their premium product continues to excel in the European market,” Xelect said in a statement.  

“Xelect looks forward to developing a long-term partnership with one of Europe’s most progressive producers of sea bass and seabream,” Xelect CEO Ian Johnston said.

Cromaris’ hatchery manager Lana Vidovic welcomed the agreement, noting that a long-term broodstock breeding program will enable the fish farm to produce high-quality fry. “We feel that collaboration with Xelect is the right way to reach those goals.”

Xelect had earlier announced a four-year genetic breeding program management service with New Zealand King Salmon, producer of internationally recognized Ora King salmon.
