    Abstract

    The Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) here has developed the seed production technology of three species of fish, which is expected to boost the mariculture industry and seafood export as well. The successful development of captive brood stock and breeding technology for food fish pink ear emperor, locally known as yeri, marine ornamental fish Marcia?s anthias and ornamental shrimp camel was the first of its kind in the world, CMFRI said in a statement today. A scientific team led by Dr M K Anil, Scientist-in-charge of the Vizhinjam Research Centre of the CMFRI developed the technology after two years of continuous attempt using the Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS), it said. The pink ear emperor (Lethrinus lentjan ), a high value food fish with superior flesh qualities and hardy nature, is a delicacy in the domestic market and has got a potential demand in global seafood markets too. It attains a growth of up to 2 kg and fetches Rs 400 to 600 per kg in the domestic market.
