Most of what you need is instruction and encouragement from someone who has “been there and done that!” with how to greatly increase fish production.

And as you can see, Fish Egg Incubator/Tumbler inventor, Don Booth is uniquely qualified to help you understand everything you need to know about the product quicker and easier to set up than all others. The product is automatic, no requirement for input by user. The product has no lids for ease of use. The product can hold at least double the number eggs, than any other on the market.!

The Beginning

The first prototype was constructed in 1995. It was constructed from a car windscreen wiper motor and switch. The 12-volt power supply for the first prototype was the size of a large shoe box. It was tested over a 2-year period and found to work very well but for a number of reasons the device was then shelved until late 2014.


The incubator was patented in Australia in 2015 and was later patented in numerous countries around the world. Between 2014 and mid 2017 five different prototypes were tested.

Fry Factory Today

The prototypes were tested for optional component design and for maximum possible fry production, from fertile eggs. In February 2018 the finished product was launched onto the market in Australia.
