Efficiency of some cyanophytes as larval feed for silver carp (Hypophthalmichthys molitrix) and the culture of Spirulina platensis JB Pantastico, SF Baldia & JP Baldia - In JL Maclean, LB Dizon & LV Hosillos (Eds.), The First Asian Fisheries Forum. Proceedings of the First Asian Fisheries Forum, 26-31 May 1986, Manila, Philippines, 1986 - Asian Fisheries SocietySix-day old carp (Hypophthalmichthys molitix) fry (mean weight 3 mg) were stocked at 5/l in aquaria. These were fed with unialgal cultures of three species of blue-green algae, namely: Anabaena sp., Oscillatoria quadripunctulata and Spirulina platensis. Best increase in weight was obtained when feeding consisted of Spirulina followed by those fed with Oscillatoria. Poor results were obtained when fry were fed solely with Anabaena. Weight gain was highest during the first two weeks with Spirulina as feed. On the other hand, survival of fry was higher (68%) with Oscillatoria than with Spirulina (54%). Proximate analysis of fish and algae were conducted. Spirulina seemed to be the most promising live food organism for larval rearing of silver carp. Thus, laboratory culture of the cyanophyte at different pH (9, 10 and 11) and two types of media (hog manure and urea) were investigated. Algal biomass production in a semi-continuous, outdoor tank system was also determined.

Philippine Agriculturist, 1986 - University of the Philippines at Los BañosA species of Anabaena was isolated from the fronds of Azolla pinnata by combining the chopped fronds of the Azolla extract with either lake water or an organic medium (duck manure alone or combined with banana stalk) and sterilizing at 121°C and 15 psi for 20 min. Growth of Anabaena sp. was observed within 33 to 37 days and compared with the morphology of A. azollae squeezed from the fronds of Azolla pinnata. Results were discussed regarding the high temperature tolerance of the recently isolated Anabaena sp. Anabaena sp. was incubated in synthetic sponge carriers and grown in different media. The total nitrogen contributions of Anabaena sp. in lake water and in nitrogen-free inorganic medium was 22.3 and 13.2 mg/l respectively after 60 days.

Fisheries Research Journal of the Philippines, 1986 - Fisheries Research Society of the PhilippinesIncreasing fish production through polyculture was clearly demonstrated to the fishfarmers in Laguna lake. The rearing of different species of fish of proper number and species combinations had resulted to the efficient utilization of all the available food niches/zones in the lake. Fish production is site specific in Laguna lake. Wide variation in growth increment and fish yield were observed among the different bays and among farm sited within a bay. The final mean weights of the fish species were 355 mg to 2300 g for bighead carp, 32 g to 103.3 g for tilapia and 8.3 g to 1800 g for common carp.
