      A comparison between the catching efficiency of two milkfish fry collecting gears and their respective modifications 

      GF Quinitio & G Kawamura - SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department Quarterly Research Report, 1980 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      An experiment was conducted along the shore of Culasi, Antique in Panay to compare the milkfry (Chanos chanos) catching efficiency of the ordinary fry seine against its innovation and the ordinary sweeper against its 2 modifications. Results show that it is possible to replace the wings of the presently used sweeper and the ends of the fry seine with a coarse-meshed netting. This improvement decreases the water resistance of the gears and thus enables fry gatherers to use larger ones thereby giving more catch.

      On the visual feeding of milkfish larvae and juveniles in captivity 

      G Kawamura & S Hara - Nippon Suisan Gakkai Shi. Bulletin Of The Japanese Society Of Scientific Fisheries, 1980 - The Japanese Society of Scientific Fisheries
      Feeding of milkfish (Chanos chanos) larvae and juveniles on Artemia nauplii in captivity was observed. The retinae of the larvae were observed histologically. Milkfish larvae could not take food in the dark. The juveniles could take food in the dark although less efficiently than in the lighted condition. Vision thus seems to be the most important sense for the milkfish larvae since feding depends very much on it. The larvae were found to have already well-developed regionally differentated retinae with all elements present. Vision, evidently, is developed foremost among the senses.
