The seedlings were obtained from Marine Aquaculture Centre, Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara and was cultured in the territorial waters of Vid Bangir Bay, Tual City for the period of June-July 2015.

The results showed that average weight of the initial (W0) of 50 grams increased to the final weight (Wt) of 368.50±7.47 grams for the duration of thirty day.  Specific growth rate (SGR) ranged from 6.53% to 6.76%. The appearance of seedlings was bright colored, fresh and healthy with many forms of thallus.  There was no "ice-ice" disease and epiphyte attached during the observation period.  Moreover, water quality parameters were at acceptable ranges.
