Kingfish fingerling

Kingfish fingerling

Kingfish (Seriola lalandi) are one of the few coastal fish species that have shown potential for rearing in sea cages. Research and development work has shown that fingerlings (young fish), such as this one, can be successfully bred at aquaculture facilities. These could eventually supply farms, which would rear them to harvestable size in sea cages, in much the same way that salmon are farmed.
