Abstract: Present study investigated the effect of stocking density on the survival and growth of Asian seabass cultured in open sea floating cages. Fish were stocked at two densities (14/ m3 and 35/ m3). Analysis revealed that stocking density had significant impact on growth and final mean weight. Survival rate, average daily growth rate and specific growth rate were higher in fish held in low stocking density when compared to high stocking density. Feed conversion ratio was lower in low density group. However, final production in terms of total biomass was higher in high density group.
