AQUACULTURE OF PARGO LA MANCHA <i>LUTJANUS GUTTATUS</i> (STEINDACHNER, 1869) IN COSTA RICA WITHIN AN ECOSYSTEM APPROACH

Keywords: Spotted rose snapper, mariculture, ecosystem-based approach, co-management

Abstract

Overfishing and the search for alternatives to it, led us to the explore mariculture as an option using an ecosystem-based approach through two parallel processes: an in-laboratory research strategy for larval rearing of tropical marine fish, and a strategy of co-management to develop tropical marine fish aquaculture. The spotted rose snapper shows great potential for larvae production and cage culture. This species showed no responses to hormone induction; however, the set up of a suitable environment allowed frequent, high-quality spontaneous spawnings. The larval rearing phase presented problems due to the small size of the larvae; although, management in appropriate tanks and the use of enrichments improved the processes, increasing the production of juveniles. This ecosystem approach allowed the operation of a profitable farm pilot project with a productive approach, but with rural tourism in mind as well.
