The overall goal of this project is to develop and document control over bottlenecks in threadfin (moi) seedstock production technology.

  • 1.Resolve bottlenecks in threadfin seedstock production.
  • Secure sufficient quantity of high-quality eggs from captive broodstock.
  • Develop a rearing technology with less than 1 percent mortality per day within the cannibalistic period (Day 25–50).
  • 2.Demonstrate and document threadfin fingerling and fry mass production technology.
  • Produce 10,000 fingerlings (<60 mm total length) using improved techniques in production-scale culture.
  • Detail culture capability developed in 1993.
