Diplodus Puntazzo, A new Species in Aquaculture: Biology and Culture (pp. 237-261) $100.00
Authors:  (Maria Dolores Hernandez, IMIDA-Acuicultura, Murcia, Spain, Francisco Javier Martinez, Dept. of Physiology, Univ. of Murcia, Murcia, Spain, Benjamin Garcia Garcia, IMIDA-Acuicultura, Murcia, Spain)
Diversifying the supply of cultured fish would contribute to stabilizing market prices and
making aquacultural facilities profitable, while offering consumers a larger variety of cultured
fish at more competitive prices than those available from extractive fishing. As a result, the
quest for new fish species suitable for farming is becoming a priority in aquacultural research.
Sharpsnout seabream is a sparid fish that has recently drawn the attention of researchers
and farmers alike, as it has many qualities that would make it a promising new species for
culture. Pilot pre-growout and growout studies have been conducted, under both intensive and
extensive culture conditions, with quite encouraging results. These results are very similar to
those obtained for gilthead seabream in terms of both growth and conversion rates. In
addition, sharpsnout seabream is an omnivorous species that has yielded very positive results
in pilot studies designed to test the possibility of replacing fish meal for soybean meal (with
replacement levels of up to 60%) as a source of dietary protein. Therefore, one may expect
sharpsnout seabream commercial diets to be more economical than those for gilthead
seabream, European sea bass, or other carnivorous species.
A number of commercial issues must be addressed before considering the large-scale
farming of sharpsnout seabream. Consumers are not very familiar with sharpsnout seabream,
as the specimens caught by fishermen tend to be locally consumed in coastal Mediterranean
