Aquaculture production in China has made large contributions to the global total volume of fish for human consumption. The developed mariculture fish species large yellow croaker (Pseudosciaena crocea) is the highest economic marine fish of China. As a schooling fish, large yellow croaker (LYC) usually migrates from northeast China to the southeast seacoast to over-winter. Indeed, there are several culture systems that can be applied for large yellow croaker, which should simulate the natural habitat for this fish species. The nutrition management of LYC has attracted researchers to study their nutrient requirements, growth, and other physiological characteristics. Here, we review the general biology (geographic distribution and habitat), hatchery development, aquaculture systems, and nutrition management of LYC. The paper aims to underpin the most significant investigations and highlight the future prospects for the LYC aquaculture industry in China.
