    In recent years finfish mariculture has been growing rapidly on a global basis especially with the development and expansion of sea cage farming. In India, much research attention was not given for developing seed production methods for high value finfishes suited for sea farming. At present we have commercial seed production of only one marine finfish – sea bass (Lates calcarifer). The Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) has been intensifying its research activities on the breeding and seed production of high value marine finfish and success was achieved in the breeding and seed production of cobia and silver pompano for the first time in the country at Mandapam Regional Centre of CMFRI. Cobia (Rachycentron canadum) and silver pompano Trachinotus blochii) are two marine finfish species with very high potential for aquaculture in India.
