New species in culture?
There is a lot of tasks to be solved when a new species is going into culture - aquaculture!

One whish to manage the whole life cycle! Is you capable of manage the broodstock under the right conditions form to mature and spawn in captivity? Do you have the right feed? Temperature and light - can it be maniopulated to mimicry nature? When eventually succesfull - will you have succes in feeding the fry? Do they feed on artificial feed imediately? Are you forced to culture algae and crusteceans to feed the fry?

And - are the species you find interesting actually a fish for the consumer?

The illustration - above - shows portion-sized Grey Mullets before and after 'pre-cooking-processing'. Grey Mullets spawn in the marine environment, but lives in the coastal zones with estuaries and often migrates to freshwater rivers and streams. This natural behavior can be used with succes in aquaculture. Brodstock and fry in salty water inhouse, weaning and on-growing to portion size in brakkish water. And if you want them to grow really big (2-6 kilos) they can be reared in sea-cages.
