On multiple occasions we’ve administered hormones to both tanks of brood fish and have observed spawning to occur 48-96 hours after administration every time. The quality of spawns has been somewhat variable. We believe golden trevally commercial scale culture to be highly feasible and could be further improved by defining larval culture requirements and optimizing brood fish spawning procedures. We look forward to receiving new species to work with and hope to overcome any difficulties that might inhibit their aquaculture potential.
