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.

The ultrastructure of the hepatocytes of the giant seaperch, Lates calcarifer (Bloch) (Pisces: Centropomidae), during starvation and refeeding with different diets. Avila, Enrique M. (The Marine Biological Association of Hongkong, 1986)Three groups of immature seaperch acclimated in the laboratory on a mixed commercial pellet and minced trashfish diet were starved for 30 days. Thereafter, the first group was starved for 7 more days, the second was refed ...
