CORAL Magazine’s Captive Bred Marine Fish Species List for 2013

by | Jan 9, 2013 | Aquaculture, Fish | 0 comments

When we think about captive bred fish in the hobby, species such as clownfish, dottybacks, gobies, blennies, and cardinalfish come to mind. At the end of 2012 I was asked by Matt Pedersen to find out how many species have actually been bred successfully in captivity and I was surprised how many have been done. I was able to find information on over 233 species that have been done at least once. We also ranked them based on availability in the trade.

Take a look at the full list in the Jan/Feb issue of CORAL magazine and HERE.

    Tal got back into the hobby in 2006 after a long break. After hearing Dr. Frank Marini speak at the Midwest Marine Conference in 2008 he was hooked on fish breeding . Since then he has created his own website with his personal captive breeding information and helped create the Marine Breeding Initiative. It is Tal's hope to promote captive breeding as much as possible by speaking and writing about the topic.
