The three photos a, b and c show the followings:

a) small white ‘hapa’ bag (0.45mm mesh) for first-nursery rearing of small juveniles directly from hatchery

b) large white bag-net (1.0mm mesh) for second nursery of juveniles (after first nursery in a hapa or outdoor tank)

c) pen (fenced area) for larger juveniles. This shows an experiment on the growth of wild-caught sandfish stocked at different densities and on different substrates in a pond

Note: We decided not to watermark the photos in order not to upset its clarity. However, we trust you will notify us if you wish to use a picture or more. This is expected and will be appreciated.
