    Many Southeast Asian countries, European nations and Western countries like USA have developed commercial marine finfish hatchery technologies for many commercially important species namely groupers, salmon, tilapia, sea bass, sea bream, snappers, mullets, Chanos, etc. They have developed capacity to produce large and dependable quality of fish seeds which is the key for establishing reliable and sustainable marine finfish aquaculture sector. In India, technology for production of marine finfish seeds is in primitive stage except for sea bass. The Mandapam Regional Centre of the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) has developed hatchery technology for cobia, Rachycentron canadum during March 2010 for the first time in the country. Again the Centre has developed hatchery seed production technology for the silver pompano, Trachinotus blochii for the first time in the country. Both the technologies are standardised and hence the CMFRI has entered into agreements with interested entrepreneurs and farmers for dissemination of technologies for development of cobia and silver pompano aquaculture sector in our country.
