Hochachka, P W (1986) Practical manual for studies of Environmental Physiology and Biochemistry of culturable Marine Organisms. CMFRI Special Publication (25). pp. 1-45.
For the applied biologist interested in mariculture, choosing the 'right' organism may mean the difference between success and failure. Generally decisions require a compromise between ease of handling (a function of how much has already been done by others) and desirability of the cultured product. In the Cochin area of India, the use of mullet, milkfish and Tilapia for mariculture, for example, represents such a compromise, which is evidently effective, presumably in large part because of the years of experience and data which have gradually accumulated on these species. However successful such choices may be, they should not rule out a continuous search for other, perhaps more advantageous, species: ones which are more hardy, grow faster, sell faster and taste better!
