      Effects of 2-phenoxy ethanol and MS-222 on milkfish fingerlings (Chanos chanos) as anaesthetic agents 

      T Murai & MR Catacutan - SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department Quarterly Research Report, 1981 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      An experiment was undertaken in order to determine an adequate anaesthetic and optimum concentrations for use in the handling of fingerling milkfish (Chanos chanos). The compounds 2-phenoxy ethanol and MS-222 were investigated. Results show the latter to be adequate with optimum concentrations between 100 and 200 ppm.

      The water stability of shrimp diets with various polysaccharides as a binding agent 

      T Murai, A Sumalangkay & FP Pascual - SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department Quarterly Research Report, 1981 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      The water stability of shrimp (Penaeus monodon) diets with various polysaccharides as binding agents were tested without steaming. The diet with alginate showed the best water stability and did not completely disintegrate in 24 hours. However, the use of alginate is dependent on cost and availability, so alternate choices may be a combination of sago palm starch and wheat flour or glutinous rice flour.
