  • Objective 1. Improve threadfin fry quality by use of rotifer enrichment methods.
  • Objective 2. Determine role of enhanced natural productivity in semi-intensive production ponds on improved survival and growth of larval milkfish.
  • Objective 3. Continue the disease testing program to insure the disease-free status of threadfin fry provided to the industry and refine it by establishing a cell line to screen for potential viruses.
  • Objective 4. Develop pair spawning methods for Pacific threadfin for genetic selection work.
  • Objective 5. Domesticate Pacific threadfin for aquaculture and produce a selected line for increased growth.
  • Objective 6. Confirm transfer of reliable fry production technologies to commercial hatcheries;
