    Cobia, Rachycentron canadum, is rapidly gaining importance in many Asian countries as an excellent candidate species for aquaculture due to its fast growth rate, adaptability for captive breeding, low cost of production, good meat quality and high market demand especially for sashimi industry. Cobia is distributed worldwide in warm marine waters. They are found throughout the water column and are caught in both coastal and continental shelf waters, although they are typically considered to be an offshore species. Under culture conditions, cobia is reported to reach 5-7 kg in body weight in 8-12 months and 10-14 kg in two years. Sexual maturity is reported in males at 1-2 years and in females 2-3 years
