Description / Table of Contents:
"European sea bass, Dicentrachus labrax, has attracted the attention of many people: scientist, fi sh farmers, fi shermen and other stakeholders. Since ancient times, this species has been regarded as a highly valuable table fi sh, and it is actually a delicacy in the current restaurant marketing. This fi sh has many different names. In France, it is called "loup de mer", while in the Iberian Peninsula it is kwnon as "lubina" or "robalo". In Italy they name sea bass as "branzino" or "spigola", whereas the Greeks refer this fi sh as "lavraki" (from its vernacular name) and the Turks as "levrek". European sea bass was historically cultured in coastal lagoons and tidal reservoirs, so it should not be surprising this fi sh species was one of the fi rst marine fi sh to be farmed in Europe using modern aquaculture techniques. In fact, in Italy sea bass and seabream are the most consumed fi sh species. With declining fi sheries, the aquaculture of European sea bass becomes increasingly important to provide a high quality product to consumers. In fact, according to FAO predictions, by 2030 over 65% of seafood will be supplied by aquaculture. Sea bass aquaculture production has been rising since the early 90s, reaching over 130,000 tonnes per year in the last few years, while fi sheries catches remain stacked around 10,000 tonnes per year. Geographically, the main production of sea bass is located in two countries: Turkey (34.2%) and Greece (34.1%); although this species is cultured in many other Mediterranean countries, such as Spain (11.4%), Italy (6.9%), Egypt (4%), Croatia (2.5%), France (2.4%), Tunisia, Cyprus, Portugal, etc"--
