      Effect of different feeding regimes on reproduction and survival of ablated Penaeus monodon Fabricius 

      JH Primavera, C Lim & E Borlongan - SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department Quarterly Research Report, 1979 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      Results of experiments conducted on ablated Penaeus monodon, fed with 4 different feeds (pellet-pellet, mussel-mussel, mussel-pellet and squid-pellet), on survival, spawning, fecundity and hatching rate are given and discussed.

      Effect of feeding rate on the survival and growth of milkfish (Chanos chanos) fry in a controlled environment 

      C Lim - SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department Quarterly Research Report, 1978 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      The optimum daily feed allowance varies with species, age, size, frequency of feeding, culture procedures, quality of feed and water quality. This experiment indicated that with a diet containing 40% protein and 3,450 kcal of M.E. per kg, a feeding rate of 16-20% of the biomass is optimum for satisfactory survival and growth of fry raised in a controlled environment. Increasing the feeding level beyond this value was not beneficial but in turn increased the ammonia-nitrogen concentration to a level which is harmful to the fish.

      Evaluation of milkfish (Chanos chanos Forskal) and prawn (Penaeus monodon Fabricius) in polyculture systems 

      B Pudadera Jr. & C Lim - SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department Quarterly Research Report, 1980 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      The growth, survival and profitability of C. chanos and P. monodon grown in 5 different combinations for 100 days in 500m2 brackish water ponds were assessed. Differences in the growth and production of prawns cultured singly or in combination with milkfish at increasing stocking density strongly suggests that the presence of milkfish exerts some negative effect on prawn. However, growth production and competition index data suggest that the presence of prawn do not significantly affect milkfish. While the maximum production of prawn can be attained in monoculture, its polyculture with 2000 milkfish/ha is also economically feasible.
