Abstract

The present study has been aimed at investigating the possibilities of culturing a few species of economically important marine fishes in suitable low cost cages suspended in coastal waters. In this paper, the results of a preliminary study on culture of rabbit fishes (Siganus Spp.). groupers (Epinephelus Spp.) and whiting Sillago sihama (Forsskal) in cages fabricated with different materials and suitability of cages are given. The experiments were conducted from March 1979 to October 1979.
