A milestone in aquaculture research has been achieved at the Seawater Laboratory of the Division of Marine Studies at the University of the South Pacific (USP). In post-graduate research co-supervised by SPC’s Aquaculture Section, the Monkey River prawn Macrobrachium lar has been successfully reared in captivity for the first time ever — from eggs through the planktonic larval phase of their lifecycle to the post-larval stage.

After thirty years of aquarium trade, the total value of aquarium exports from the Pacific region is currently between USD 40 and 60 million – accounting for about 10–15% of the global trade. This trade has now become an important source of income and employment for local communities in the Pacific. For example, in Fiji Islands alone it provides employment for 600 people and fisheries revenue second only to tuna.
