Finfish culturing is recognised as being an important part of the aquaculture industry in the future, particularly as the world will soon experience shortages in the supply of white fish.

Striped trumpeter (Latris lineata) have been successfully spawned in an artificial environment by the Department of Primary Industries, Water and Environment, with juveniles being reared to 2 years of age. Technical difficulties with rearing have imposed delays on the research, but it continues to be pursued by University of Tasmania and Tasmanian Aquaculture and Fisheries Institute researchers.
