      Culture of finfish in netcages 

      DD Baliao, MA De los Santos & NM Franco - Aquaculture Engineering, 1998 - Society of Aquaculture Engineers of the Philippines, Inc.
      This report consists of two parts, the first deals on the cage culture of grouper, and the second on cage culture of tilapia. The culture of groupers is done in netcages set in marine waters, while tilapia is raised in netcages set in freshwater ponds, reservoirs or in lakes.

      Effect of tank color on the survival of mud crab Scylla serrata larvae 

      MA de los Santos, T Taro, D Uehara, I Dwight & L Masami - In ET Quinitio, FDP Estepa, YC Thampi Sam Raj & A Mandal (Eds.), Proceedings of the International Seminar-Workshop on Mud Crab Aquaculture and Fisheries Management, 10-12 April 2013, Tamil Nadu, India, 2015 - Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Aquaculture (MPEDA)
      The survival rate of mud crab or mangrove crab Scylla serrata larvae was evaluated using black and yellow-painted tanks. About 400,000 zoea 1 were stocked in 6 tons of treated seawater. The larvae were initially fed with rotifers and subsequently with newly hatched Artemia until the megalopa stage. The larval rearing water was enriched with a combination of Spirulina powder and frozen micro-algal products that include Nannochloropsis sp., Tetraselmis sp. and Thallasiosira weissfolgii. After 15 to 17 days of rearing, the larvae successfully molted to megalopa stage. A total of 377,062 megalopae were harvested. Although the survival rate of megalopae was higher in yellow tanks (23.63± 0.03%), it was not significantly different when compared to those in black tanks (15.66±0.02%) (P=0.05).

      The modular method: Milkfish pond culture 

      DD Baliao, MA de los Santos & NM Franco - 1999 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      Series: Aquaculture extension manual; No. 25
      The modular method of milkfish culture (Chanos chanos) described in the manual is an improvement over the traditional extensive method. The manual is intended for the use of fish farmers and aquaculturists, extensionists, and students of aquaculture not only in the Philippines, but also in other milkfish-producing countries in Southeast Asia and the world. It covers the following: Interesting facts about milkfish -- biological characteristics, artificial breeding of milkfish; Design and operation of modular pond system -- pond preparation, stocking in the nursery or transition ponds, stocking in the rearing ponds, care of stock, pond utilization and production schedule, harvest and post-harvest; and, Economics and costing.
