This paper describes an incidence of swimbladder malfunction causing high positive buoyancy and mass mortality in 2-week-old sea bass (Lates calcarifer) larvae reared in an outdoor hatchery tank under conditions of high ambient temperature (26–32°C) and salinity (32–34‰), and a dense diatom bloom. The problem occurred soon after handling the larvae by seine and bucket, and seemed to have been a case of swimbladder stress syndrome (SBSS). The development of the swimbladder in sea bass larvae is briefly described.

Studies on the nursery rearing of seabass, Lates calcarifer (Bloch) fry in illuminated floating net cages Fermin, Armando C.; Bolivar, Ma. Edna C.; Gaitan, Albert (Ministry of Agriculture and Water; King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology; Riyadh Chamber of Commerce and Industry, 1994)The feasibility of rearing seabass, Lates calcarifer, fry for fingerling production in illuminated floating nursery cages was determined. In experiment 1, seabass fry of 20.0 mm mean TL were stocked at 600 and 1200 in 1 ...
Larval intervals of the sea bass, Lates calcarifer, based on the development of swimming and feeding functions. Kohno, H.; Duray, M.; Ohno, A.; Taki, Y. (Asian Fisheries Society, 1994)Developmental sequences of characters concerned in swimming and feeding function were examined on laboratory-reared seabass larvae. Based on a scheme of development events constructed in this study, the early life hisory ...
