This survey reports on available literature concerning meagre (Argyrosomus Regius). Total catches are restricted to the Eastern Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea (8000 and 1000 metric tons per year, respectively). Recruitment in French coastal areas is uncertain. Annual catches (mainly small-sized fish and low market prices) are in the range of 100-700 tons. Meagre could be interesting for aquaculture: high flesh quality and flavour, high commercial value over 2 kg, rapid growth between 16 and 20°C, high tolerance to salinity. The first, two-year, trials on meagre grow-out are underway in two commercial fish farms on the French Mediterranean coast.
