- Develop a track record of threadfin growout success in Hawaii and refine growout techniques by providing a seasonal supply of seedstock and optimizing on-site growout densities.
- Develop more cost-effective means of milkfish production applicable to conditions in Hawaii by examining the feasibility of semi-intensive green water culture for fry production and by stocking younger fry into growout systems.
- Determine the effectiveness of milkfish as bait by conducting fishing trials on commercial and sport fishing vessels.
- Provide information and on-farm technical support in establishing and managing threadfin and milkfish nursery and growout systems.
