Abstract:
This paper reviewed the natural resources, wild seed availability, the biology, fishery and export potential of the sand whiting, Sillago sihama. Also, this paper reviews the scope, cost of production, feed conversion ratio of existing diversified species, salinity tolerance, growth, survival, crude protein level requirement, food and feeding habits of Sillago fish. The paper also discusses the fish potential in capture and culture sectors; suitability for pond, pen and cage culture conditions in freshwater and saltwater systems. On reviewing the various desirable culture attributes and foreseeing the diminishing profit margins of other diversified fish species we conclude that there is a need to standardize the package of practices and technical innovations on various culture aspects of fish including nursery and grow out raising, optimum stocking density, salinity tolerance, crude protein level requirement of fish to further foster and include a new diversified species in the aqua farming basket.
