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.

Enrichment of live food with essential fatty acids and vitamin C: effects on milkfish (Chanos chanos) larval performance Gapasin, R. S. J.; Bombeo, R.; Lavens, P.; Sorgeloos, P.; Nelis, H. (Elsevier, 1998)The effects of essential fatty acids (EFA) and vitamin C-enriched live food on growth, survival, resistance to salinity stress and incidence of deformity in milkfish larvae reared in tanks were investigated. Larvae were ...
Hu, Fei; Liao, I-Chiu (Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, 1976)Growth of young milkfish was studied at different levels of salinity over a period 68 days. Results suggested that young milkfish reared in freshwater or less saline sea water grew faster than in sea water. The increase ...
The effect of various salinity levels and stocking density manipulation methods on the survival of milkfish fry (Chanos chanos Forsskal) during storage Quinitio, Gerald F.; Juario, Jesus V. (Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, 1979)Results of the study indicate that the survival rate and increase in body weight did not differ significantly at different salinity levels or at different stocking density manipulation methods. A significant interaction ...
