Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Hippocampus whitei are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Hippocampus whitei, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Hippocampus whitei, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.

Distribution
Fishbase:
Southwest Pacific: Solomon Islands and Australia. Records from southern Mozambique and Natal, South Africa are misidentifications of Hippocampus camelopardalis. International trade is monitored through a licensing system (CITES II, since 5.15.04) and a minimum size of 10 cm applies.

Biology
In shallow, weedy inshore areas and Zostera seagrass beds; also on sponges. Also under jetties on holdfasts of kelp, and on other man-made structures such as shark nets. Diurnal and site faithful.
Ovoviviparous. The male carries the eggs in a brood pouch which is found under the tail.
