    Much progress has been made in the last decades in the industrial farming of several species of marine fish. The pioneering country has been Japan with the red seabream, however, in the last decade Europe made quick progress with seabass and gilthead seabream. Today Japan is still the biggest producer of marine fish fry with about 200 million fry per year, 70% of the production consisting of red seabream and Japanese flounder. Without any doubt, the most significant progress achieved during the last decade has been the result of improved nutrition, more particularly through the manipulation of the fatty acid profile of the live preys Brachionus and Artemia by application of enrichment or boosting techniques with emulsified or microparticulated products rich in highly unsaturated fatty acids.
