Oceanic Institute Achieves Breakthroughs In Culture Technology For Yellow Tang.
Global Aquaculture Advocate (January February 2013): 82-84.
The culture of yellow tang represents a considerable economic opportunity and critical conservation strategy in coral reef ecosystem protection. The Oceanic Institute is working to establish aquaculture techniques to reduce the capture of wild yellow tang. Despite bottlenecks, improvements in broodstock holding systems and dietary regimes are raising egg output and quality. Specialized larval-rearing tanks enable the generation of large numbers of larvae through the critical first-feeding period. Refined lighting and equipment are leading to more consistent feeding.
