- Groups of milkfish juveniles (mean weight, 2.8 g) were fed diets containing white fishmeal and gelatin with varying protein-energy to total metabolizable energy (PE:TME) ratios.
- Amino acids were incorporated in the diets to stimulate the pattern of milkfish protein. The control diet contained fishmeal as sole protein source and was not supplemented with amino acids
- Among the amino acid supplemented diets, best growth was observed at PE:TME ratio of 44.4%. However, the control diet gave better growth rate than any of the amino acid supplemented diets
- Specific activities of pyruvate kinase (PK) and glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH) increased significantly with increase in dietary protein-energy level.

Kumagai, Shigeru; Castillo, Nelson (Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, 1978)Fry shrank immediately after they were preserved in formalin, but from the second week onwards shrinkage was almost nil. Fry in freshwater formalin solutions shrunk less than those in seawater formalin solutions. It is ...
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 ...
Smith, Ian R. (International Center for Living Aquatic Resources Management; Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, 1981)The fry and fingerling industry of the milkfish (Chanos chanos Forskal) in the Philippines is alleged to suffer from certain imperfections. Primary among these are an annual shortage of catch necessary to meet the stocking ...Series: ICLARM technical reports; 1 | SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department contribution; No. 93
