    In recent years, mariculture has been growing rapidly on a global basis especially with the development and expansion of sea cage farming. On a global basis, a rapid growth in marine finfish culture is noted. It has increased at an annual average growth rate of 9.3% from 1990 to 2010. Salmonids, amberjacks, sea breams, sea basses, croakers, groupers, drums, mullets, turbot, other flatfishes, snappers, cobia, pompano, cods, puffers and tunas are the major groups which are maricultured. One of the major reasons for the growth of sea cage farming is the availability of breeding techniques that can produce sufficient quantity of seeds of different high value marine finfish. Many countries in the Asia-Pacific Region like Australia, China, Japan, Taiwan, Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam have made substantial progress in the development of commercial level seed production technologies of high value finfish suitable for sea farming. In India, the broodstock development and seed production of sea bass, cobia and silver pompano were developed and standardized for commercial level production.
