Trova Trout Farm is situated in the beautiful mountains of Sabie, on the Longtom Pass in the Mpumalanga Province of South Africa. The area is dedicated to the commercial farming of pine trees – hence the clear cold water throughout the year, ideal for the holding of brood stock and the production of quality trout ova.
Previously known as Sabieshoek Trout, it has been producing quality genetics, certified disease free without interruption since 1998 – to date the oldest disease free certified farm in South Africa. It is owned and backed by the Lunsklip Group of Companies, pioneers in aquaculture since 1972.
The farm is tested ongoing with two samplings per year to coincide with routine stripping of hens during winter and routine slaughter during summer. This is done by the South African state veterinarian authorities as well as an independent aquaculture vet, Dr. David Huchzermeyer who is also involved in Trova’s health management.
