Information @ a Glance

  • Groupers are fish of any of a number of genera in the subfamily Epinephelinae of the family Serranidae, in the order Perciformes.
  • Grouper (Epinephelus spp.) locally called inid or lapu-lapu is a high value fish with great potential in aquaculture.
  • The grouper is a popular marine good fish in many parts of the world such as in Kuwait, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, the  Philippines, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Republic of China, Japan and Mexico.
  • Groupers are widely distributed in the tropical and subtropical coastal waters.
  • Site selection is the first and most critical step in establishing a grouper farm. Poor site selection can lead to failure.
  • Climate and weather in the area are important considerations as they affect water quality. The area should not be subject to abrupt changes in temperature and salinity.
  • The main objectives of pond preparation are to provide the culture organism with a clean hard pond base and appropriate stable water quality.
  • The demand for grouper in the international market is fast growing particularly in Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore.
  • The annual grouper fry/fingerling catch is estimated to be in the hundreds of millions of fish.
  • The major proportion of hatchery-produced grouper fingerlings originates in Taipei, China.
  • As production technology for groupers and other marine finfish species has improved, there has been increasing development of  hatcheries and hatchery production of several species in Southeast Asia.
  • Recent improvements in hatchery production technology have resulted in an overall increase in the survival of grouper larvae in hatcheries, which has led to increased commercial hatchery production of several species, particularly orange-spotted grouper, brown-marbled grouper, and giant grouper.
  • Increasing market demand for groupers with assured quality (and food safety), produced using environmentally sound farming practices, will provide further incentives for LRFF farmers to adopt improved environmental management practices.
