Currently, there are about 1,500 cages, ranging from 216 cu.m to 1884 cu.m, operated in the coastal waters off Penghu, Pingtung, Ilan, and Hsinchu Prefectures in Taiwan. Over 80% of these cages are devoted to Cobia culture. Cobia attains maturation at 9-10 kg and spawns spontaneously from March to October. Incubation takes 30 hours at 24-26 deg C. Larval rearing takes about 45 days for the fry to reach 8-10 cm. Nursing takes another 25-30 days to reach 30g. The fish are then transferred to marine cages for growout culture. They can reach 6-8 kg in cages in one year. About 1,500 mt of cobia was produced in Taiwan in 1999. Of which, over 450 mt of 6-8 kg whole fish was marketed to Japan at cage-side prices of 150-180 NT$/kg (US$5-6/kg). The preliminary success suggests that there is a great potential for marine cage aquaculture of cobia in Taiwan.
