Quality of eggs spawned by Epinephelus coioides fed fish by catch (control). Cod liver oil-enriched fish by catch (TFC), and commercial HUFA A-enriched fish by catch (TFS) was monitored. Monthly egg production, spawning frequency, fertilization rate, egg viability, and hatching rates of the control were significantly higher compared to TFS Egg production. Spawning frequency and hatching rate of TC and TFS were not significantly different. Results suggest that varying the species of fish by catch could provide the requirements of E. Coioides broodstock so as to provide quality eggs
