Abstract: An attempt was made to study the captive breeding and larval rearing of Amphiprion sebae by using estuarine water. Sub-adults of the anemone fish [a2], A. sebae were procured from the traders with the size range of 4-6cm and acclimatized to captive condition. After 2 months of acclimatization [a3], pair was formed. At the end of 4th month, the fishes were spawned. After 6-8 days of incubation hatching took place and the larvae metamorphosed in 15-18 days. Rotifer, Brachionus plicatilis and Artemia nauplii were fed to the larvae gave a maximum survival rate. Total larval survival in the present study was 55%. The babies reached the marketable size in 3 months.
