Abstract

Availability of adequate quantity of high value marine finfish seed is the major prerequisite for initiation and expansion of finfish mariculture. Breeding and seed production of marine finfishes of high value have been expanding in recent years internationally. Large quantities of hatchery produced seeds meet the need for sea cage farming in many countries (Hong and Zhang, 2003). It is well understood that the first step towards seed production technology is the development of broodstock. Prior to 1980s, broodstock of finfishes were grown mainly in indoor concrete tanks
