Caption: Scientist holding a tank of fish in an aquarium used to raise fish for restocking habitats. The fish were collected from the Mediterranean Sea at the post-larval stage and reared in the aquarium. Post-larvae have a mortality rate of 95 per cent, so capturing them at this stage allows more to survive and is a sustainable process. They will be used to repopulate areas, such as harbours, that have seen a decrease in fish numbers. This technique is known as post-larval capture and culture (PCC).
