      Acetes as prime food for Penaeus monodon larvae 

      P Kungvankij, AG Tacon, K Corre, BP Pudadera, G Taleon, E Borlongan & IO Potestas - 1986 - Asian Fisheries Society
      This paper presents research attempts to develop a suitable artificial diet for shrimp larvae with locally-available materials. Larval rearing experiments using finely ground Acetes tissues conducted under various climatic conditions and hatchery systems were completed. In the dry season, larvae in outdoor tanks fed dry Acetes had the highest survival rate (68%) compared to larvae fed Chaetoceros (48%) or fresh Acetes (39%). In contrast, larvae from an indoor hatchery reared with Chaetoceros had higher survival rate (52%) than those fed with Acetes (35%) and fresh Acetes (24%).

      During rainy months, the survival of larvae reared with Skeletonema , dry and fresh Acetes in outdoor tanks was 72%, 52% and 38% and in indoor tanks 62%, 40% and 23%, respectively.

      An incidence of swimbladder stress syndrome in hatchery-reared sea bass (Lates calcarifer) larvae 

      T Bagarinao & P Kungvankij - Aquaculture, 1986 - Elsevier
      This paper describes an incidence of swimbladder malfunction causing high positive buoyancy and mass mortality in 2-week-old sea bass (Lates calcarifer) larvae reared in an outdoor hatchery tank under conditions of high ambient temperature (26–32°C) and salinity (32–34‰), and a dense diatom bloom. The problem occurred soon after handling the larvae by seine and bucket, and seemed to have been a case of swimbladder stress syndrome (SBSS). The development of the swimbladder in sea bass larvae is briefly described.

      A prototype warm water shrimp hatchery 

      P Kungvankij, LB Tiro Jr., BJ Pudadera Jr., E Borlongan, ET Tech & TE Chua - 1989 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      Series: NACA technology series; No. 4
      A description is given of the prototype warm water shrimp hatchery established and operated by SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department since 1982. Hatchery design, operation and management, larval rearing in small indoor tanks, larval rearing in large nursery tanks, routine hatchery management, harvesting and transportation and financial aspects are covered.
