The Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) has developed hatchery technology for picnic seabream, a marine food fish. The fish popularly known as black seabream and goldsilk seabream is renowned for its excellent meat quality and high economic value. Picnic seabream has an increased demand in the domestic market and is sold at a price of around Rs 450 to Rs 500 per kg.
Picnic seabream grows at a better speed and has strong resistance to diseases and ability to cope up with wide variations in environmental parameters like salinity and temperature.
CMFRI director A Gopalakrishnan has said that the Karwar Research Centre of CMFRI breeding technology has developed this breeding technology, which is likely to open up enormous scope for India’s mariculture ventures in near future. He further said that “The next task of the institute is to standardise the farming protocol of the fish as no record of breeding and aquaculture of this fish is available in the country.”
