Effects of increased stocking density and supplemental feeding on the production of milkfish fingerlings
MetadataShow full item record
Experiments were conducted to determine the effects of increased stocking density and supplemental feeding on survival and growth of milkfish (Chanos chanos) fry to fingerling stage and also to evaluate the profitability of supplemental feeding in the milkfish fry nursery. Results showed that increased stocking density from 50 to 75 fry/m2 increased net income and is profitable. Survival was further increased through supplemental feeding with rice bran, which is cheap and easily obtainable.
