Cobia (Rachycentron canadum): a selected annotated bibliography on aquaculture, general biology and fisheries 1967-2015.

Abstract

The good-quality white flesh of cobia (Rachycentron canadum) and high value in some markets make it one of the most important marine fish species for future aquaculture production. Commercial cobia farming from hatchery-produced seed stock began in the late 1990s and some aspects of broodstock management, larviculture, nutrition and health, among others, still need research and improvements. The present compilation covers the period between 1967 and 2015 and includes publications on cobia general biology, fisheries and aquaculture for the potential benefit of students, researchers, farmers, and the industry.
