Development of culture techniques for new species is not a job that can be done easily nor quickly. This topic is one of the priority areas of the national aquaculture research programme (JACUMAR). New relationships and common objectives are being created between research groups that need to innovate in different aspects in order to consolidate some of these cultures.
Octopus, common dentex, sole, spider crab and grouper culture are a priority.There is availability of broodstock in the XRAq groups for some of these species. In other cases, it is possible to get eggs from other aquaculture research institutes.
There are several topics of interest:
• Reproduction: sole, eel and spider crab.
• Larval culture: octopus, common dentex, sole and grouper.
• Fingerling culture: sole, common dentex, spider crab.
