Cobia


Overview

Cobia farming takes place primarily in China (87% of total production assessed) and Taiwan. With a species score of 37, cobia ranks among the worst performers of all species assessed. Ecological energy (ECOE) and industrial energy (INDE) are problem areas in both countries, whereas BOD, antibiotics (ANTI), and parasiticides (PARA) are important in differentiating the relative performances of China and Taiwan. Cobia production is relatively small, comprising less than 1% of global marine finfish production assessed by GAPI.
