Various extenders, containing potassium chloride, sodium chloride, glucose, sodium citrate, Ringer's solution, cow serum and milkfish serum were used to preserve milkfish (Chanos chanos) sperm at near-zero temperatures (0-4°C) and in liquid nitrogen (?196°C). Milkfish serum was a superior extender in both cases. After 5 days, comparatively good motility (> 30%) and fertilizing capacity (6.7-18.9%) were observed in the near-zero liquid samples, while in other extenders, sperm ceased to show motility after 2 days. The fertilization success of 4-5 days cryopreserved sperm averaged 67.5% (n = 2) with milkfish serum, 60.5% (n = 2) with 400 mM glucose, 58.0% (n = 2) with 150 mM sodium chloride, 41.2% (n = 1) with Ringer's solution and 31.9% (n = 2) with cow serum.
