Asian seabass, also known as barramundi, is an important species with distribution from the Persian Gulf throughout Australasia and into the western Pacific Ocean. Valuable in both economic and recreational fields, it is also of cultural significance, and its importance is growing due to increasing commercial farming. This volume collects a series of papers on all aspects of the biology of Asian seabass. Beginning with an introductory chapter on general taxonomy, it proceeds to cover reproductive biology of the species, the effects of climate on its life cycle and distribution and its parasitology. Ecology, both general and in the context of feeding practices is then addressed. Finally, there are several chapters on the aspects of commercial exploitation of the species, including farming and its nutritional value.
