It is presented under the following main section headings: General principles; biology; Selecting a suitable site; Design - tank systems, seawater supply system, freshwater supply system, aeration system, other facilities; Broodstock - source of breeders, breeding techniques; Egg collection, transport and hatching; Larval rearing - stocking density, feed types and feeding management, water management size-grading of larvae; Harvest and transport of fry; and, Propagation of larval food - Chorella, Brachionus, Artemia, Moina.
A 42-page manual updating AQD's 1990 publication of the same title. It details the activities in the seabass hatchery, from breeding until the harvest and transport of fry to fishponds. New section on the propagation of natural food Moina and Diaphanosoma has been added.
