The sense organs and behaviors of milkfish fry in relation to collection techniques
MetadataShow full item record
This paper describes the sense organs and some of the behavioral characteristics of milkfish (Chanos chanos ) fry, based on studies conducted at the Aquaculture Department, SEAFDEC, Philippines and at Kagoshima University, Japan in 1982. Based on the experimental results obtained and the observations made in the Philippines, Indonesia, and Taiwan, existing fry collection techniques such as the employment of fish lamps and scare lines are considered effective and rational. Several recommendations are made for improvements of the collection gear and for research on fry behavior.
