Cedar Creek is located at C233- 12th Concession, North of Shawville, Qc. This aquaculture business is owned and operated by Cory and Laura Thomas. Both Rainbow and Speckled Trout are raised on this location. These fish are raised for restocking freshwater systems from fall to spring, and for supplying markets with fresh trout year round.
The production cycle starts at the egg stage. Trout eggs (seen in photo) are placed in special baskets and within a couple of weeks the eggs will hatch into fry (small fish).
Eventually the fish are placed in large circular tanks. The cool clear water is supplied by natural springs and a creek. Fish are raised here for stockers & fresh fish market. Through the provincially inspected slaughterhouse fish are processed and sold as fresh whole trout, fillets and hot smoked trout.
