Investigations on the feeding behavior of juvenile milkfish (Chanos chanos Forsskål) in brackishwater lagoons on South Tarawa, Kiribati
MetadataShow full item record
This study evaluated the feeding behavior of the milkfish (Chanos chanos Forsskål) in extensively managed brackishwater lagoons on South Tarawa, Kiribati (Central Pacific) in August 1998. Feed intake, dietary overlap, fish condition and morphometric intestine parameters were determined. The daily ration of fish was estimated using the ”modified Bajkov model”. Fish stomach content did not differ significantly between samples from day and night, but prey preferences showed significant differences (p < 0.05). Results were compared with a data set of juvenile milkfish from the Philippines raised under similar conditions.

Utilization of mung bean, Vigna radiata (Linnaeus) as a novel protein source in practical-type diets for juvenile milkfish, Chanos chanos (Forsskal): Effects on growth, feed efficiency, body composition, and histology of gut and liver Apines-Amar, Mary Jane S.; Coloso, Relicardo M.; Amar, Ma. Novie G.; Golez, Maria Shirley M.; Bunda, Marj Gem B.; Jaspe, Cecilia J. (Society of Israeli Aquaculture and Marine Biotechnology (SIAMB), 2015)A 15-week feeding trial was conducted to determine the optimum partial inclusion of mung bean protein in milkfish diet. Six isonitrogenous practical-type diets with mung bean included at 0%, 4%, 8%, 12%, 16%, and 20% of ...
