Milkfish fry collection and handling.
Milkfish fry can be collected in almost all the coastal waters of the tropical Indo-Pacific region. The fry season occurs at different times of the year in various sections of the species' geographical range. The season is longer near the equator and become progressively shorter at higher latitudes. In regions affected by monsoon or trade winds, the peak fry season typically coincides with one or both of the biannual wind shifts. These seasonal peaks are more or less predictable, but fry abundance may vary from year to year. This paper summarizes the methods and practices of collection, storage, transport and acclimation of milkfish fry in various countries.
