Abstract
    Marine fishes are part of the economically-important commodities under research-and-development at SEAFDEC/AQD. To ensure sustainability in aquaculture, AQD has taken steps to (1) develop hatchery technologies for the supply of quality seed, thereby minimizing dependence on fry catch from the wild; (2) formulate environment-friendly diets to replace trash fish as feed for the carnivorous reef fishes; and (3) develop and field-test nursery and grow-out culture technologies. This manual describes nursery culture techniques for high-value marine fish species developed at AQD.
