How to produce 100 tonnes of sandfish

The article is based on an ongoing collaboration in Vietnam between the WorldFish Center (formerly ICLARM) and the Ministry of Fisheries, at the Research Institute for Aquaculture No. 3, Nha Trang City, Khanh Hoa Province. The work described is oriented towards regions near the equator, where induced spawning of on-grown broodstock should be possible over about 10 months of the year. A shorter breeding season (in subtropical areas) would necessitate bigger installations, but a larger market size would have the opposite effect.
