The potential of the aquaculture in the Arabian Gulf has been evaluated. The factors t~at affect the selection of a species and system for the culture have been discussed. Among the indigenous species grouper (E. tauvina) and sea bream (M. cuvleri) give the best options. However, larval rearing is still the main problem in their large scale culture. Among the exotic species Tilapia (Sarotherodon) spp. give the best prospects. Open flow pond system seem to be the most acceptable system for use to operate in the Gulf area
