The Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) has succeeded in mass seed production of orange-spotted grouper (Epinephelus coiodes), a fish species enjoying high demand in the market. Hatchery seed production of the species, carried out by the Vishakapatanam Regional Centre of CMFRI, is expected to boost sea-cage-culture enterprises. The orange-spotted grouper is a commercially important carnivorous fish with high demand in many overseas markets. According to Shubhadeep Ghosh, senior scientist at the Vishakapatanam Regional Centre, the initial success in seed production was achieved in 2014, but the survival rate of the larvae was very low. After manipulating water quality and feeding protocols, an enhanced survival rate was achieved. The larvae are now in advanced stage with a size of around 3 cm after 42 days of rearing in the hatchery, and ready to be transferred for nursery rearing. Later, the fingerlings can be used for mariculture in grow-out cages, he said.
