Joseph, Shoji (2009) Nursery rearing of seabass fry and importance of grading and seed transportation. In: Course manual: National training on cage culture of seabass. Imelda, Joseph and Joseph, V Edwin and Susmitha, V,(eds.) CMFRI & NFDB, Kochi, pp. 44-49.



The Asian seabass (Lates calcarifer) is an important food fish and a potential aquaculture species in tropical countries. It exhibits catadromous habits within its areas of distribution. It is an advantageous culture species because after early larval rearing in seawater, it can be cultured in all levels of salinity, from fresh to seawater, and in a variety of culture systems from open ponds and cages to flow-through and closed recirculation systems. In addition, this species produces large number of eggs that can be reared intensively on fresh and pelleted feeds, and can reach a market size of 350 to 700 g in one year or less periods under optimum culture conditions.
