Marine fish broodstock development at SEAFDEC/AQD: status and advances
The success of a fish culture operation depends, in part, on adequate supply of seed for hatchery and grow-out. The culture and husbandry of many of Southeast Asia's marine fish species are constrained by the unreliability of seed supply which are seasonally gathered from coastal areas. To augment the natural seed supply and decrease the dependence on wild catch, SEAFDEC/AQD has undertaken studies to develop a captive source of breeders for some of the economically important marine fish species in the region. This paper presents a brief update of the status and recent advances in marine fish broodstock development undertaken by SEAFDEC/AQD.
