Abstract

The cobia (Rachycentron canadum ) is distributed worldwide in warm marine waters. They are found throughout the water column and are caught in both coastal and continental shelf waters, although they are typically considered to be an offshore species. Wild caught cobia do not support a major commercial fishery and generally considered as incidental catch. Sexual maturity is reported in males at 1-2 years and in females 2-3 years, with females growing both larger and faster with maximum sizes upto 60 kg.
