The effect of stocking density on the growth of mulloway, Argyrosomus japonicus, was tested with 17 g fish stocked at 4.08, 8.16, or 16.32 kg m−3 in 50 l aquaria. Weight checks were carried out every 2 weeks to track performance. Each density treatment was also compared to a nonhandled control group to establish if handling during weight checks influenced the growth of mulloway. Mulloway performed poorly at the lowest density and, under the current experiment conditions, growth did not appear… CONTINUE READING
