European sea bass have been raised in the favorable climate of the Middle East since 2000. For effective larval rearing of sea bass, the authors recommend the use of temperature-controlled water with about 35 ppt salinity and good aeration in
The University of the Canary Islands in Spain is researching yellowtail broodstock management and larval rearing to promote aquaculture diversification in Europe.
The culture of yellow tang represents a considerable economic opportunity and critical conservation strategy in coral reef ecosystem protection. The Oceanic Institute is working to establish aquaculture techniques to reduce the capture of wild fish.
Recirculating aquaculture systems have properties that can mature and stabilize the microbial community, creating a more benign bacterial flora in larval tanks.
