Abstract

The "Seabass" or the "Giant perch", Lates calcarifer is of prime quality value fish in whichever locality it occurs. That artificial production of its seeds is possible has been proved in Thailand by collecting spawners from the wild. This is followed by breeding the fish in tanks under captivity and production of the first batch of induced-bred fry there in 1973. Since artificial seed production and intensive culture of the Seabass are yet to be realised in India, the salient features of these aspects observed at Singapore are presented in this paper.It is possible to develop induced breeding and seed production inIndia. The availability of trash fish such as sardines, silver bellies and sciaenids in order to feed the stocked material appears to be quite good in India
