|EMW-25||3||Barramundi(=Giant seaperch)||Barramundi(=Giant seaperch)||Lates calcarifer||500.00||900.00||Both||Normal/usual weight or weight range||NONE||Barramundi grow rapidly, reaching a harvestable size (350 g ? 3 kg) in six months to two years.|
In Asia, most barramundi are marketed at 500?900 g, although small numbers of larger fish (1?3 kg) are also sold.
In Australia, there are two main products from farmed barramundi: 'plate size' and fillet product. 'Plate size' fish range from 350?500 g, although larger (banquet) fish may be up to 800 g. Fillet product fish are generally in the range of 2 to 3 kg.
|95% of production tonnage for this species category in 2010 was from Asia, with most of the rest from Australia.||general||More info.||Cultured Aquatic Species Information Programme - Lates calcarifer||More info||More info.|
