The Azienda Agricola Pescicoltura Burrini can be considered one of the first firms in the fish sector. In the fifties Giuseppe Battocchi inherited from the uncles a modest fish business and he had the intuition to use the cold and oxygenated mountain water to start the trout breeding. At the beginning the business was based only on the eyed eggs production. Later, thanks to the growing request of consumption trout, the business has specialized also on the trout production.

In 2000 the main plant which takes place in Vigo Rendena, -Brenta area- was firstly modernized and then totally rebuilt. Nowadays it is composed by some cement ponds and the result is a more efficient and higher production quality. In 2006 other two plants were bought in the Treviso area. One is fed only by rising water coming from some groundwater and it’s destined to the fingerlings (from eggs to 5 gr.), trouts (5-100 gr.) and eggs production. The second, instead, uses superficial water and its production is based principally on commercial size trout.
