Aquaculture of Lates calcarifer, known as seabass, was commenced in the 1970s in Thailand, and rapidly spread throughout Southeast Asia. In India also it is a sought after fish in many states. The grow-out phase involves the rearing of the seabass from juvenile to marketable size. Marketable size requirement of seabass vary country to country e.g. in Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong and Singapore, the normally accepted marketable size of seabass is between 700–1200 g while in the Philippines, marketable size is between 300–400 g. The culture period in grow-out phase also vary from 3–4 months (to produce 300–400) to 8–12 months. The success of marine cage culture of seabass and its economical viability have contributed significantly to large scale development of this aquaculture system
