The seabass market

By Marilyn B. Surtida


Seabass (Lates calcarifer) are high value fish occupying a market niche with snappers and groupers. An examination is made of the seabass market in Asia, considering the current situation in the Philippines, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand, and in Australia. The European markets for seabass, Dicentrarchus labrax, are also outlined. Potential for seabass skin as a leather material to be used in making shoes, belts and other attractive accessories is discussed briefly
