Six different diets, commonly used in the Philippines for rearing milkfish, Chanos chanos, try, were tested by means of growth, survival and histology. These diets included: a) live food (Artemia nauplii); b) two different dry feeds; c) natural feed supplements (rice bran, egg yolk); d) a mixture of live and dry feeds. The mixed diet was found to give the best results, closely followed by live food. The dietary value of one of both artificial feeds improved with increasing age of the fish, whereas the other was clearly inadequate. The same was true for the natural compounds. Results obtained from statistical and histological analyses were congruent; the latter provided additional insights not obtained with statistic data alone.

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 ...
