The establishment of land-based recirculating systems for cobia could expand production of the species. The authors, who demonstrated cobia are well suited for culture in tanks, conducted a study to compare the performance of cobia reared at different densities.

Collaborative research in Florida is developing technologies for rearing marine fish in low-cost, low-salinity recirculating systems. Spawning and larval production studies have led to the mass production of juveniles.
In a trial, rearing density affected the mean weight and weight gain of pompano, although differences between treatments became apparent toward the end of the study.
