Net cage culture of Lates calcarifer Bloch and other marine animals in Thailand
MetadataShow full item record
Feeding experiments on sea bass, Lates calcaifer , have been carried out in nylon net cages in Songkhla, since 1971, to obtain information on: (1) growth rates; (2) survival rates; (3) food conversion rates; (4) environmental conditions that affect the fish. Data from these experiments, some of which are briefly reproduced in this paper, prove that sea bass can be successfully cultured in net cage. Among other marine invertebrates, the cuttle fish, Sepia sp., showed the best potential for culture in net cage.
