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