Results of drift card experiments and considerations on the movement of milkfish eggs and larvae in the northern Sulu Sea
MetadataShow full item record
For a period of one year beginning December 1977, drift card experiments were conducted off the western and southwestern coasts of Panay Island to determine the surface currents in the area. Of a total 2,384 drift cards released during the study, 382 (16.02%) were recovered, 92% of them within 30 days following dispatch. The surface currents in the study area are strongly influenced, in direction and speed, by the prevailing monsoon winds. During the NE monsoon period, the surface currents move away from the coast; during the SW monsoon, toward and/or parallel to the coast. Based on the results, the probable movement and transport of milkfish eggs and larvae from the spawning ground to the fry collection ground are also discussed.

Senta, Tetsushi; Kumagai, Shigeru; Ver, Leo (Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, 1976)Location of spawning grounds of milkfish is one of the most important steps towards gaining knowledge on the spawning habits of the fish as well as the early life history and nature of its eggs and larvae. The present study ...
Senta, Tetsushi; Kumagai, Shigeru (Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, 1976)The existence of races and/or subpopulation in milkfish, a widely distributed species, is suggested by many workers. Comparison of mean numbers of vertebrae is one of the useful method of distinguishing subpopulations. The ...
