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.

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 ...

Growth and survival of milkfish (Chanos chanos) larvae reared on artificial diets Borlongan, I. G.; Marte, C. L.; Nocillado, J. (Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, 1996)A preliminary feeding experiment was conducted to determine growth and survival of milkfish larvae reared on various feeding regimes involving the use of artificial diets. Two larval diets (Feed A and Feed B) containing ...
