James, D B (1994) Culture of holothurians : hatchery and production Techniques: A review of the hatchery and culture practices in Japan and China with special reference to Possibilities of culturing holothurians in India. CMFRI Bulletin, 46 . pp. 63-65.
Pioneering work on the hatchery and culture of holothurians is done by the Japanese. In recent years some work has been done in China. Both in Japan and China work is conducted on Stichopus japonicus. It is significant to note that both the countries do not import beche-de-mer due to their culture practices. In China transplantation of holothurians is done from north to south to enable them to spawn due to higher temperature. At present in Japan sea-ranching is restored on a large scale. In India Holothuria (Metriatyla) scabra has been successfully induced to spawn in the laboratory and there is a good possibility to culture the juveniles in farms.
