Artificial fertilization of eggs and early development of the milkfish Chanos chanos (Forskal)
MetadataShow full item record
Hydrated eggs obtained from a female milkfish were artificially fertilized with the milt collected from a male injected with acetone-dried pituitaries of salmon. The fertilized eggs (1.1 to 1.25 mm in diameter) developed normally in seawater in basins and Petri dishes at a salinity of 30-34 ppt and successfully hatched in 25 to 28½ hours at a temperature of 26.4-29.9°C. The yolk was completely absorbed in about 2½ days and at this period many postlarvae died. A few larvae were reared up to 5 days but all died within 6 days. Effects of feeding the postlarvae from the third day with freshly hatched trochophore larvae of oysters obtained from eggs artificially fertilized in the laboratory could not be ascertained.

(AquaFish Collaborative Research Support Program, Oregon State University, 2012)In the Philippines, cage culture of milkfish in marine environments is increasing. The practice uses high stocking densities, with significantly greater inputs of artificial feeds which more often than not, have led to ...
