Abstract : Polyculture, extensively used in Israel and the Far East, makes better use of resources than monoculture, thus increasing yield and returns. Some species combinations shown to be productive on the Gulf Coast are blue shrimp (Penaeus stylirostris) and green shrimp (P. vannamei), striped mullet (Mugil cephalus) and various shrimp (Penaeus spp.), and striped mullet (M. cephalus) cultured with black drum (Pogonias cromis). Redfish (Sciaenops oscellatus) and blue tilapia (Talipia aurea) need to be evaluated both together and in polyculture with other species in dredged material disposal areas.
