Early stages of marine fishes in Southeast Asian Region
MetadataShow full item record
The production of marine capture fisheries in the Southeast Asian region in 2007 was 12.4 million tons occupying 19% of the world production. Apparently, the fisheries including its processing products have been a very important food industry in the region. The fisheries industry have also ensured people employment and given the benefit of foreign currency through export of captured fishes and their processing products. Marine capture fisheries production in the region has been yielded largely from the coastal sea areas where nowadays the fisheries resources are evidently depleted. For policy making of the fisheries management to sustain the resources and production, biological information of targeted fishes, namely the spawning area and season, the nursery ground and the recruitment and migration patterns, is indispensable.
