A study on certain aspects on the biology and control of Caligus sp., an ectoparasite of the adult milkfish Chanos chanos (Forskal)
MetadataShow full item record
One unidentified species of copepod belonging to the genus Caligus was found to infest the adult milkfish broodstock kept in canvas tanks at the SEAFDEC research station in Mag-aba, Pandan, Antique, Philippines. This report describes the morphology of the adult and early larval stages of this copepod. A highly effective method of control using the chemical Neguvon (2,2,2-trichloro-1-hydroxyl-phosphoric acid-dimethylethol) at a concentration of 0.25 ppm is recommended.
