    Capture-based aquaculture defines and reviews certain practices that are shared between aquaculture and capture fisheries. It specifically considers the on-growing of fattening of four species groups - eels, groupers, tunas and yellowtails - which is based on the use of wild-caught "seed". The report begins with an introduction on the overlap between aquaculture and fisheries and their global trends. Chapters on the four species group follow and include information on species identification, fishery trends, the supply and transfer of "seed" for stocking purposes, aquaculture trends, culture systems, feeds and feeding regimes, fish health, harvesting and marketing. Further chapters examine the environmental and socio-economic impacts of capture-based aquaculture, together with the relevant fisheries and aquaculture management issues. Finally, the report looks at food safety issues, as well as identifies topics for future consideration. The principal targeted audience includes policy-makers, administrators and trainers in the fields of aquaculture, fisheries and the environment.
