      Bioenergetics of the freshwater prosobranch Idiopoma angularis Muller in Laguna de Bay 

      EA Baluyut - SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department Quarterly Research Report, 1977 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      This study was made as an attempt to investigate some of the ecological aspects of the freshwater snail Idiopoma angularis Muller in a modern framework of energy flow and mathematical models. It offers the first investigation of respiration (as related to temperature and body size), production (growth), and excretion in the prosobranch I. angularis in Laguna Lake.

      Limnological features of Lake Buluan: Preliminary findings and observations 

      WG Yap, EA Baluyut & JMF Pavico - Fisheries Research Journal of the Philippines, 1983 - Fisheries Research Society of the Philippines
      A limnological survey of Lake Buluan in Mindanao was conducted to evaluate its potentials for fishpen and fish cage culture. The lake was found to be shallow and highly productive, with the major physicochemical and biological parameters within ranges favorable for fish production.

      The lake has high gross primary production values attributable to high densities of phytoplankton, primarily blue-green algae. It has a high annual yield of 10,000 mt of fish, which when divided by its area of 6,000 hectares, gives an average production of 1.64 mt/ha/yr - the highest open water catch in the Philippines and in Southeast Asia today.
