    Common rabbit fish reported from India are Siganus javus, S. canaliculatus, S.lineatus , S.stellatus, S. vermiculatus. S. canliculatus is generally found and its sizes vary from 20-25 cm, with a maximum of 45 cm TL. They are found in coral reef areas, mangrove swamps and shallow lagoons (Saoud et al., 2008) and are able to tolerate a wide range of salinity (17-37 ppt), low dissolved oxygen upto 2 ppm and pH upto 9 and high stocking densities andgrow well in temperatures between 23 and 30°C. All these characters make this species suitable for culture.
