In addition, he pointed out that after a few months of care, the fry acquired a size between 10 and 15 centimeters, and with a level of sufficient development to allow them to survive in the environment. “This is the moment in which they are ready to be planted in the bodies of water in the province in which they have already been planted before.” The fry are transported in special bags with oxygen and sheltered from the temperature and direct sunlight, while upon reaching the planting point, the bags are placed closed on the bed of a place with calm water so that the thermal exchange and the temperature inside the bag is equal to that of the water course. Once the bag is opened, it is ensured that the fish come out by their own means.
