Abstract

In recent years it has been reported that nearly 1500 species of marine ornamental fishes are traded globally and most of these species are associated with coral reefs. Nearly 98% of the marine ornamental fishes marketed are wild collected from coral reefs of tropical countries. The damaging fishing methods which destroy the fragile corals and over harvesting of the species in demand are the vital problems associated with the trade. It is widely accepted that the ultimate answer to a long term sustainable trade of marine ornamental trade can be achieved only through the development of hatchery production technologies. In this context it is imperative to develop commercially viable seed production techniques of species which are in demand for the long term sustainability of the trade.
