  1. Determine the effects of larval diet and pre-harvest sieving on reducing size variability and increasing survival of post-metamorphosed amberjack.
  2. Develop techniques to maximize survival of juvenile amberjack for air-transport over long distances (up to 8 hours) and ocean transport to offshore cages.
  3. Obtain preliminary biological performance information of amberjack during offshore nursery and growout phases.
  4. Conduct workshop and develop factsheet incorporating results of this project for rapid transfer to farmers in Hawaii and the Pacific region.
