Abstract

Marine finfish seed production and farming has been well developed in the Asia- Pacific Region and is expanding very fast. Over the last twenty years, marine finfish aquaculture, predominantly cage farming has spread throughout Asia and the predominant involved are China, Indonesia, Taiwan Province of China, Japan, Philippines, Republic of Korea and Vietnam. A large number of finfish species are farmed in cages and yet there is a significant reliance on wild caught young ones for farming such as groupers. The main species farmed in brackishwater are the barramundi or Asian sea bass (Lates calcarifer) and the milk fish (Chanos chanos). In inshore marine cage farming, the major farmed species include Seriola spp., snappers (Lutjanus spp.), groupers (Epinephelus spp.) and cobia (Rachycentron canadum).
