Abstract

Captive breeding and rearing of Hippocampus kuda, onc of the most dominant species of seahorscs was done to determine the optimum conditions of rearing, which would give the bighestsurvival, and growth of juveniles. A diet or enriched Artemia and mixed marine copepods was found to be the best feed combination during a rearing period 01'60 days. A stocking density 01'3 juveniles per litre was found to be the optimum, which gave the highest mean incrcment of growth in length and weight, as well as the highest mean production per litre.
