Developments in the breeding of cultured fishes.

The controlled breeding of finfish for culture is reviewed with special refer-ence to recent developments and persistent problems. Freshwater species are at present cultured on a much larger scale than brackishwater and marine species which have potential for aquaculture in arid and semi-arid lands. A reliable supply of fish seed for freshwater farming can usually be produced from captive broodstock whereas coastal aquaculture still depends largely on collection of seed from the wild.
