      Developmental and ecological stages in the life history of milkfish Chanos chanos (F.) 

      P Buri, VC Bañada & AT Triño - Fisheries Research Journal of the Philippines, 1981 - Fisheries Research Society of the Philippines
      Seven stages in the life history of milkfish Chanos chanos are suggested: embryonic, yolksac larval, larval, postlarval, juvenile, sub-adult and adult stages. These were based on morphological differences and on their particular ecological requirements. The latter include: behavioral pattern, food and feeding habits, and habitat requirements. Throughout the life cycle of milkfish the stronger driving force with determines particular behavioral strategies can be attributed to the evolutionary response of the organism of food distribution (availability) followed by predation pressure.

      Milkfish fry occurrence pattern in two localities along the Western Coast of Panay Island 

      S Kumagai, VC Bañada, NM Castillo & AS Unggui - SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department Quarterly Research Report, 1978 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      The results are presented of a study of milkfish fry occurrence in the Philippines, namely at Magaba and at Tubog. There were 2 peaks of fry occurrence in the latter, one in May and another in October, whereas only one peak occurred in the former in May. The possible influence on light intensity on the fry seasons is examined.
