Four of the experiments were conducted in L indoor recirculation tanks. Higher spawn numbers and greater egg production were observed under controlled photoperiod, and higher numbers of juveniles and a higher survival rate were observed under natural photoperiod. The diversity of existing food may decrease malnutrition through the consumption of underutilized species. Two males and one female at the first stage jlrdani reproduction were included in each test.
