Abstract

High mortality rate usually occurred during early larval stage of marble goby, Oxyeleolris marmoralus. A research done in UMS had shown that the early larvae had the highest survival rate and growth rate in 10 ppt seawater, while no survival up to 12 dAH although marble goby belongs to the freshwater species. This study was to establishe seed production by looking the possibility of replace natural seawater with salt water as culturing water when seawater source is not available at inland area. Experiment was done on early larvae 0-10 dAH, larvae were introduced into different salinity created by salt. Survival of larvae was counted daily and the behaviour was observed. There was significant difference in survival rate across the different salinity created by salt (P< 0.05). None of the survival found in any salinity created by salt, all larvae died within five days. Salt water, pure NaCI was not recommended to be used in marble goby larval rearing.
