A convenient and rapid biopsy method for taking ovarian samples from mature sea bass (Lates calcarifer Bloch) is described. Intra-ovarian oocytes siphoned with polyethylene tubing from any region of the ovary provide a sample representative of the maturational stage of sea bass. The osmolality of a 5% phosphate buffered formalin solution is similar to that of sea bass plasma. The follicular diameter of cannulated sea bass oocytes can be measured within an hour after fixation in 5% phosphate buffered formalin without significantly deviating from the diameter of fresh oocytes.

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 ...
