Physico-chemical characteristics and pathogenicity of Vibrio Parahaemolyticus-like bacterium isolated from eye lesions of Chanos chanos (Forsskal) juveniles
MetadataShow full item record
Vibrio parahaemolyticus-like bacteria were isolated from eye lesions of milkfish juveniles. The tolerance of the typical isolate to various temperature, pH and salinity levels was tested. Pathogenicity tests done via both injection and immersion challenge techniques induced high mortalities in milkfish fingerlings. Juveniles challenged by immersion method exhibited a very low mortality rate, but eye lesions were observed and these ranged from various degrees of eye cover opacity, to cataract-like tissue formation around the lens, and the failure of the artificially injured site to heal. The impact of the present observations to the milkfish industry is discussed.

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
