This work uses scientific work by the Polynesian Fisheries Department (SPE) and Ifremer to enlighten the reader on the biology of the Platax, its life cycle, the mimetic behaviour of its young and its place in the lagoon fish chain. It presents fresh elements: a reliable method of obtaining quality fry and prospects for producing commercially-sized fish with a secure breeding benchmark.

The result is an initial transfer of know-how to the profession which is essential if the activity is to develop further.
