This chapter begins by providing a historical account of the development of rearing and culture of marine species, including the work done by large-scale marine fish rearing in re-stocking natural populations through juvenile releases to the wild. The chapter also discusses the methods of experimental fish culture, including specific topics as the obtaining of gametes, artificial insemination, fish feeding, and the factors that affect growth and survival of reared marine fishes, which include rearing containers, water quality, light relations, and water temperature. Discussions on the types and areas of experimental studies for fish culture and rearing are presented as well; these areas of study include embryonic development and endogenous nutrition, food requirements and feeding behavior, and responses to predation and pollution.

Keywords:   aquaculture, mariculture, marine fish, fishes, fish feeding, predation, water pollution, habitat degradation, artificial insemination
