I'd be willing to bet that freezing fertilized fish eggs would be a very
simple thing to do, and that it wouldn't be too much trickier to apply
similar technique to the vivaparous fishes. It would also be very simple
in most cases to mass-produce those fertilized eggs in any fishfarm
laboratory using standard mass-culture techniques.
In other words, this part of the plan should be a relative breeze.
Dealing with those eggs once thawed would be the hard part.
