Biological evaluation of phytoplankton (Chlorella sp., Tetraselmis sp. and Isochrysis galbana) as food for milkfish (Chanos chanos) fry.
Cited times in Scopus
Phytoplankton cultures of Chlorella sp., Tetraselmis sp. and Isochrysis galbana were used alone as feed to rear separate batches of newly caught milkfish (Chanos chanos) fry (about 21 days old). Ultrastructural studies of fry hepatocytes and pancreatic acinar cells indicated that they cannot directly utilize Chlorella, which has a rigid cell wall. The fry can directly utilize Tetraselmis and Isochrysis, but neither is nutritionally adequate for growth and survival if used as the only feed. Tetraselmis is nutritionally inferior to Isochrysis.

Yolk resorption, onset of feeding and survival potential of larvae of three tropical marine fish species reared in the hatchery This paper provides basic early life-history information on milkfish (Chanos chanos), seabass (Lates calcarifer) and rabbitfish (Siganus guttatus) which may explain in part the observed differences in their survival ...
The effect of various salinity levels and stocking density manipulation methods on the survival of milkfish fry (Chanos chanos Forsskal) during storage Quinitio, Gerald F.; Juario, Jesus V. (Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, 1979)Results of the study indicate that the survival rate and increase in body weight did not differ significantly at different salinity levels or at different stocking density manipulation methods. A significant interaction ...
Smith, Ian R.; Chong, Kee-Chai (Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center; International Development Research Centre; Island Publishing House, Inc., 1984)Historically, milkfish (Chanos chanos Forsskal) has been the premier aquaculture product in Indonesia, the Philippines, and Taiwan. However, there are significant differences in the industry's performance among and within ...
