Effects of exogenous hormone injections on milt consistency in newly caught, wild milkfish
MetadataShow full item record
The study was conducted to study the effects of single injections of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) (Ayerst Laboratories, Inc) and Durandron Forte 250, a long-acting androgen preparation (N.V. Organon Oss, Holland), on sperm motility, vitality and density and on the consistency of milt in newly caught, wild, mature milkfish (Chanos chanos). There is an advantage in using Durandron Forte 250 in inducing thinning of milt in mature milkfish during the natural breeding season to facilitate fertilization of eggs. Aside from its long-lasting effect which minimizes handling of fish, it is much cheaper than HCG.
