Preliminary notes on the salinity preference of milkfish, Chanos chanos, fry
MetadataShow full item record
Vertical salinity gradient columns were used to investigate the salinity preference of milkfish fry. Newly captured fry showed a preference for 32‰ salinity. Fry which had been in captivity for one to five days, at 12 or 22‰ salinity, had no salinity preference between waters of 12, 22 or 32‰ salinity.

Dumada-ug, E. B.; Sevilleja, R. (Bureau of Agricultural Research, Department of Agriculture, 2007)Milkfish yields in Palawan in 1993–94 were low, only 595 kg/ha-yr on average and ranged 100–700 kg/ha-yr in 35 of 50 farms surveyed. Only seven farms had yields between 1,000 and 1,800 kg/ha-yr. Yields were higher in deeper ...
