MetadataShow full item record
The mariculture program of the University of Texas, Port Aransas Marine Laboratory is a team approach to the study of marine finfish which are native to Texas coastal waters. Researchers in the mariculture program ... are currently conducting studies on the following: spawning, eggs and larvae, natural habitats, fingerling production and grow-out systems, reproductive physiology, and nutrition. These studies are designed to answer basic biological and technical questions which must be resolved before finfish can be grown in controlled environments. Although our major emphasis is on red drum, other finfish such as spotted seatrout, red snapper, and pompano are also being studied. The following is a report of our research activities and accomplishments during the year August 1981-82.
