The hepatocytes of milkfish fry offered different artificial diets (carbohydrate-, lipid-, protein-oriented) and live food (Artemia spp., Brachionus plicatilis) differ considerably both qualitatively and quantitatively as was shown by means of transmission electron microscopy and planimeter. Food deprivation, too, resulted in ultrastructural alterations of milkfish fry hepatocytes. Thus, this cell type might be used as an indicator of quality and quantity of food in teleosts.

Lactate dehydrogenase isozyme patterns during the development of milkfish, (Chanos chanos (Forskal)) Requintina, Pura D.; Engle, L. M.; Benitez, Lita V. (University of the Philippines at Los Baños, 1981)Polyacrylamide disc gel electrophoresis was done to determine the lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) isozyme patterns for fry (5-3 mg), fingerling (6-12 g), pond-size (150-250 g) and adult (6-9 kg) milkfish. The patterns were ...
Benitez, Lita V. (Philippine Council for Aquatic and Marine Research and Development, 1989)This paper reviews recent work on milkfish nutrition. Substantial progress had been made towards understanding the digestive physiology of milkfish. Major enzaymes envolved in the digestions of carbohydrates, protein and ...
Kumagai, Shigeru; Bañada, Vicente C.; Castillo, Nelson M.; Unggui, Abdul S. (Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, 1978)The results are presented of a study of milkfish fry occurrence in the Philippines, namely at Magaba and at Tubog. There were 2 peaks of fry occurrence in the latter, one in May and another in October, whereas only one ...
