Effects of three temperature treatments on activity, feeding, growth, development and survival of young milkfish (Chanos chanos) were investigated. Low temperature (<22.6°C) and hypoxial condition (<1 ppm O2) decreased activity, responsiveness and food intake; high temperature (up to 33°C) had the opposite effect. Growth and development were fastest in fish maintained in high temperature (x = 29.5°C). Fish in low temperature (x = 20.7°C) had the least growth and were inhibited from developing into juveniles during the 3-month period. Highest survival (x = 99.7%) was obtained in high temperature but was not significantly different (P>0.05) from ambient temperature (x = 97.7%).
