The batch of 400.000 eggs were shipped out of Reykjavik on 26th of November and landed safely in Miami the day after. Upon arrival at the site, the eggs were undergoing quality control before they were transferred to the hatching racks.
Johan Andreassen, chief executive of Altantic Sapphire said: “We are very pleased with the quality of the ova we received. These eggs are the starting point of our production in the Miami facility, and we are expecting to harvest the first batches in the fall of 2020.”
