The technology for milkfish hatchery in Indonesia
The culture of milkfish (Chanos chanos), which is the oldest fish cultured in Indonesia, has spread to almost all the provinces in the country. In order to answer the demand of milkfish fry, without decreasing production and wild fry supply, artificial fry production in big and small-scale hatcheries is being practiced. Details are given of the milkfish hatchery system, listing also the major criteria to be taken into account for site selection. Operation of the hatchery is described, outlining the following activities: broodstock rearing; hormone implantation; broodstock maintenance; egg production and harvest; and, larval rearing.
