Mathews, C.P. and Samuel, M. (1992) A simple and objective bioeconomic index for choosing species for culture. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 15(2), pp. 19-21.
Details are given of the development of a bioeconomic culture index that may be used to assist in choosing fish for culture. This index takes into account growth performance indexes and mean annual prices of the fish. Examples are given of the culture indices of some of Kuwait's commercially important fish species. The proposed indices given realistic output for these fish and allow comparison and evaluation of different taxa with widely differing biological and economic characteristics.
