Abstract:

Strong market demand, combined with the high price of live groupers for live food fish, aquarium fish, and grouper farming, has been enticing all participants in the live reef fish trade (LRFT) network in Asian countries to exploit more live groupers, resulting in an alarming situation regarding groupers in the wild. The current destructive fishing methods that are used to catch live groupers, the fishery's potential for overexploitation, and its impact to both fishers and consumers have raised many concerns among environmentalists, live grouper businesspeople, and the grouper fishers on the need to wisely manage the grouper resources in the wild. Introducing grouper culture looks promising as an option for grouper management.
