Seed production and farming of marine Finfishes such as Cobia, Silver Pompano, Mangrove Red snapper, Giant Trevally, etc.
To transfer the technology of seed production and farming to the aquafarmers for sustainable aquaculture.
Standardized Live feed Culture technology require to sustain marine finfish hatchery.
The project devised and standardized broodstock Domestication, maturation and conditioning of Cobia, Silver pompano, Mangrove red snapper and Giant Trevally.
Year-round production of Algae, Rotifer and larval rearing is standardized. The project carries out induced breeding and larvae rearing of Cobia from the year 2011 onwards and achieved a maximum survival rate of 15.5 % (from Hatchling to Fingerling).
Conducting awareness programmes on the potential for farming of Cobia and Pompano in sea cages as well as grow-out farms.
