The photos show small to medium-size cage farming of Asian seabass (Lates Calcarifer) in Thailand. The shown cages are placed in Khlong Koh Kui; Phuket province. The cage dimensions are 3×3.5 m with a depth of 1.5 m. Fish fingerlings are obtained from fish hatcheries (governmental). Fish are mainly fed on trash fish. Typically, the growing season lasts about 6-8 months allowing the fish to reach an average size of about 500-1000 g. Produced fish could be marketed by the cage farmers or via fish traders. One of the photos shows an active role of women in cage management.
