Ichtyogenic means ‘Fish’ (Ichtyo) and genetics (genic). In this centre they breed particular fish species which are very rare and therefore precious. The breeding techniques are as similar as possible to the natural ones, because fish are bred only to repopulate the species. The fish kinds belong to the same species as it would happen in intensive commercial breeding centers, but they are kept separate to safeguard their genetic distinguishing features which allowed them to adapt to the environment where they live. The Municipality of Molveno is very proud of this experiment of sustainability.
