Seahorse can be grown in brackishwater
MetadataShow full item record
Seahorse, hitherto known to thrive in seawater, can feel at home in brackishwater ( a blend of sea and freshwater), too. This was found in a study done by researcher Grace Garcia of the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center Aquaculture Department (SEAFDEC AQD) in Tigbauan, Iloilo, situated 24 kilometers west of Iloilo City. Her research is titled "Tolerance of seahorse Hippocampus kuda (Bleeker) juveniles to various salinities". In the study, she transferred nine week-old hatchery-bred seahorse juveniles from ambient seawater salinities to different salinity levels ranging from 0 parts per thousand to 85 ppt.
