The barramundi, which is also called sea perch, giant sea perch, Asian sea bass and Australian sea bass (Lates calcarifer) can be reared in tanks, earthen ponds and cages using freshwater, brackish water and full strength seawater.

Barramundi is by definition a euryhaline catadromous fish, meaning the species is able to withstand a wide range of salinities.

Barramundi mature sexually at three to four years of age. Most of the fish mature initially as males and participate in one or more spawning seasons before undergoing a sexual inversion (protandry) and becoming functional females by the next breeding season. Barramundi are opportunistic predators; crustaceans and fish predominate in the diet of adults.
