||IFREMER, a French governmental agency, is engaged in research on tropical aquaculture since 1971, with the aims to develop new activities in French overseas territories and to export French technology to foreign countries. With 80 searchers and technicians the "Centre Oceanologique du Pacifique" is the main IFREMER's centre involved in tropical aquaculture. The research has been focused on the complete control of the whole cycle: constitution of broodstock, maturation and reproduction, larval rearing, and grow-out.
