    Abstract

    The Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (ICAR-CMFRI) on Thursday said it has developed a hatchery technology for picnic seabream (Acanthopagrus berda), a commercially important marine food fish. The CMFRI has described it as a "breakthrough" in diversification of the country's mariculture activities as it is expected to open up enormous scope for the countrys mariculture ventures in near future through species diversification. Also known as black seabream and goldsilk seabream, the fish is known for its excellent meat quality and high economic value. It has high demand in the domestic market with a price of around Rs 450 to 500 per kg. Locally called as 'karutha yeri', the fish is an excellent species for mariculture owing to its faster growth rate, strong resistance to diseases and ability to cope up with wide variations in environmental parameters such as salinity and temperature, a CMFRI release said here on Thursday.
