dc.description.abstractThis study evaluated the effects of different feeding levels and frequencies on milkfish (Chanos chanos) growth, feed efficiency, and water quality in brackish water ponds. Milkfish juveniles (average weight, 1 g) were stocked in 500 m2 ponds at 8000 ha-1 and reared for 132 days. Fish were fed daily after 34 days from stocking (initial average weight, 22 g) either at 3 % of body weight, 3 times daily; at 4 %, 3 or 6 times daily; or at 6 %, 6 times daily. There were no differences (α= 0.05) in production (780–960 kg ha-1), final weight (125–168 g), and survival (81–85 %) among treatments. Maximum feed ration (kg ha-1 day-1) ranged from 23.8 at the 3 % feeding level to 61.4 at 6 %. The feed conversion ratio (FCR) significantly increased (α= 0.05) in proportion to feeding rate, while the percentage nitrogen assimilated by milkfish decreased from 41 % at low feeding rate to 21 % at high rate. Partial budgeting analysis showed that increasing the feeding rate from 3 to 4 % resulted in a positive net benefit, but further increase to 6 % had a negative benefit. Dissolved oxygen (DO) concentrations at dawn were always higher at the lower feeding level compared to other treatments. Although there were no differences in nitrogenous nutrients and total suspended solids among treatments, pH, total ammonia-nitrogen, and phosphorus increased and DO at dawn decreased with increasing biomass and feed input. Results suggest that supplemental feeding for milkfish grown in brackish water ponds should not be more than 4 % of body weight and 38 kg feed ha-1 day-1 for maintenance of good water quality and for economical operation.en
