- Bulletin of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology, 1999 - Springer Verlag
Organotin pesticides, triphenyltin acetate or hydroxide have long been used as an inexpensive method to control the population of brackish water shails Cerithidea cingulata in the pond culture of milkfish (Chanos chanos ...
Production of hatchery-bred early juvenile milkfish (Chanos chanos) in nursery ponds through supplemental feeding
- Animal Biology and Animal Husbandry, 2012 - Bioflux Society
Hatchery-bred early juvenile Milkfish (Chanos chanos Forsskål, 1755) (average weight of 0.45 g) were stocked in a 500 m2 nursery pond at a density of 16 juveniles/m2 during the dry months (March-May). ...
Tryptophan requirement of juvenile Asian sea bass Lates calcarifer
- Journal of Applied Ichthyology, 2004 - Blackwell Publishing
The dietary requirement of tryptophan for juvenile Asian sea bass (Lates calcarifer Bloch) was studied. The juveniles (mean initial weight, 5.30 ± 0.06 g) were given semi-purified test diets containing fish ...
Evaluation of leguminous seed meals and leaf meals as plant protein sources in diets for juvenile Penaeus indicus
- The Israeli Journal of Aquaculture-Bamidgeh, 1998 - Society of Israeli Aquaculture and Marine Biotechnology
The potential of locally available legumes (white cowpea, Vigna unguiculata, and green mung-bean, Vigna radiata) and leaf meals (papaya, Carica papaya, and cassava, Manihut esculenta) in combination with defatted soybean ...

The brood size, parturition frequency and parturition occurrence of tiger tail seahorse, Hippocampus comes were evaluated for 180 days using single and combined diets comprising Artemia salina, mysid shrimp Mesopodopsis ...
Effects of dietary l-tryptophan on the agonistic behavior, growth and survival of juvenile mud crab Scylla serrata
- Aquaculture, 2010 - Elsevier
The reduction of the survival of mud crab during culture has been largely attributed to aggressive encounters and cannibalism. In some crustaceans, suppressed aggression is linked to increased concentration of circulating ...
Effect of dietary protein to energy ratios on growth, survival, and body composition of juvenile Asian seabass, Lates calcarifer
- Aquaculture, 1995 - Elsevier
The optimum protein-to-energy (P/E) ratio for juvenile sea bass (body weight, 1.34 ± 0.01 g) was determined using practical diets in a 3 × 3 factorial experiment. Three protein levels (35, 42.5 or 50%) and three lipid ...
Lysine and arginine requirements of juvenile Asian sea bass (Lates calcarifer)
- Journal of Applied Ichthyology, 2001 - Blackwell Publishing
Two separate experiments were conducted to determine the dietary requirements of juvenile Asian sea bass Lates calcarifer Bloch for lysine and arginine. Fish (average initial weight: lysine experiment, 13.12 ± 0.12 g; ...
