Culture of grouper, sea bass and red snapper
MetadataShow full item record
Marine fish production has increased dramatically in the past ten years and majority of the cultured species were produced in Asia in 1992. Increase in production was accompanied with concerns on increasing outbreak of disease, degradation of environment as a consequence of culture practices, and the alleged shortage of seed supply and feeds. This paper reviews the state of the art of the culture of grouper, sea bass and red snapper.

Presence of snapper, seabass, and siganid inhibits growth of luminous bacteria in a simulated shrimp culture system The antibacterial effect of the presence of Tilapia hornorum against luminous bacteria in shrimp culture has been reported. This study investigates how the presence of commercially valued marine species such as seabass, snapper and siganid affect the growth of luminous bacteria in shrimp culture water. Results showed that luminous bacterial count of water stocked with seabass, siganid and snapper are significantly lower than those without fish. Therefore this study has demonstrated that seabass, siganid and snapper are alternative species for culture with shrimp to control or inhibit the growth of luminous bacteria in shrimp ponds.
