    Dear all,

    What is the meaning of brood :
    For L.vannamei you must source PCR-verified Specific Pathogen Free PLs from a hatchery of a known health status which only uses verified SPF, closed life cycle brood stock not of farm pond origin.
    context from the document of fairtrade shrimp standar

    Thank you

    I suppose that brood stock are the shrimps from which you will breed more shrimps, contrasted with the shrimps you will or may be selling.
