This offer is for 100 Sleepy Cod fingerlings at an approximate length of 30 – 60mm. They have been spawned and grown under controlled conditions on our 200 acre farm near Childers in Queensland and are now ready for sale.
Sleepy Cod are rapid growers and can reach plate size (>500g) in 18 – 20 months. Whilst their growth rate is longer than many other species, the flavour is well worth the wait. Their natural schooling behaviour means that they can be densely stocked in farm dams, ponds or reticulated systems. These two attributes alone make them a very popular choice for growing out in farm dams, ponds and reticulated systems.
On The Plate
The clean white colour and the texture of their flesh makes this fish an attractive choice for many seafood lovers. In particular, their ability to readily absorb the flavour of oriental spices also makes them a favourite for Asian cuisine
