    Effects of exogenous hormone injections on milt consistency in newly caught, wild milkfish 

    JV Juario, GF Quinitio, J Banno & M Natividad - SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department Quarterly Research Report, 1981 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
    A study was conducted to determine the effects of single injections of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) and Durandron Forte 250 on sperm motility, vitality and density and also on the consistency of milt in newly caught, wild, mature milkfish (Chanos chanos). In contrast to HCG, single injections of Durandron Forte 250 were effective not only in inducing spermiation but also in maintaining newly caught mature males in good running condition for a maximum of 7 days, despite daily handling and collection of approximately 3ml milt.

    Effects of temperature on behavior, growth, development and survival of young milkfish, Chanos chanos Forsskal 

    AC Villaluz & A Unggui - SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department Quarterly Research Report, 1981 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
    The effects of 3 temperature treatments on activity, feeding, growth, development and survival of young milkfish (Chanos chanos) were investigated under laboratory conditions. It is believed that the results may be applied to develop a land-based mass production technology in rearing milkfish fry to fingerlings.

    Dietary crude protein requirement of Tilapia nilotica fry 

    CB Santiago, M Bañes-Aldaba & MA Laron - SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department Quarterly Research Report, 1981 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
    To determine growth and survival of Tilapia nilotica fry fed formulated practical dry diets with varying crude protein levels, fish were subjected to 3 seperate feeding trials. Isocaloric practical diets containing 20, 25, 30 and 35% crude protein were fed to fry at 15% fish biomass daily for 7 weeks in 2 trials and another set containing 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45 and 50% was given for 8 weeks. On the basis of growth, survival and feed conversion, T. nilotica fry required 35% crude protein in the practical diets given at 15% fish biomass.

    Gill lesions associated with acute exposure to ammonia 

    ER Cruz & GL Enriquez - SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department Quarterly Research Report, 1981 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
    Histopathological effects of ammonia on the gills of milkfish (Chanos chanos) fingerlings were examined qualitatively.

    The water stability of shrimp diets with various polysaccharides as a binding agent 

    T Murai, A Sumalangkay & FP Pascual - SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department Quarterly Research Report, 1981 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
    The water stability of shrimp (Penaeus monodon) diets with various polysaccharides as binding agents were tested without steaming. The diet with alginate showed the best water stability and did not completely disintegrate in 24 hours. However, the use of alginate is dependent on cost and availability, so alternate choices may be a combination of sago palm starch and wheat flour or glutinous rice flour.
