Nine-year old milkfish (3.8 kg., average body weight) were individually marked with Visible Implant (VI) tags to monitor their reproductive performance following hormonal induction. All tags were retained after one year; only 5 out of 64 tags were not readable due to improper implantation. The advantages of using VI tags include: less tagging time (less than one minute), high retention rate, longer retention, infection-free, and easily readable.

Lactate dehydrogenase isozyme patterns during the development of milkfish, (Chanos chanos (Forskal)) Requintina, Pura D.; Engle, L. M.; Benitez, Lita V. (University of the Philippines at Los Baños, 1981)Polyacrylamide disc gel electrophoresis was done to determine the lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) isozyme patterns for fry (5-3 mg), fingerling (6-12 g), pond-size (150-250 g) and adult (6-9 kg) milkfish. The patterns were ...
