MetadataShow full item record
Groupers (Epinephelus) are cultured in the Philippines using tiny fry and juveniles caught from the wild. A SEAFDEC/AQD technology verification study on grouper pond grow-out culture resulted in high productivity and profitability, indicating that grouper culture could become another income source for the country. This aquaculture extension manual is intended as a guide for fishfarmers and aquaculturists, extensionists, and students of aquaculture.
