Occurrence of milkfish eggs in the adjacent waters of Panay Island, Philippines
Location of spawning grounds of milkfish is one of the most important steps towards gaining knowledge on the spawning habits of the fish as well as the early life history and nature of its eggs and larvae. The present study is an attempt towards this objective. Surveys were made in selected areas in the sea around the Panay Island and milkfish eggs were collected on several occasions from surface to 20 m depth water by towing with larval nets. The eggs floated in the water in a glass jar. The eggs and newly hatched larvae had the same characteristics as described by Delsman (1929). A comparative study has been made to distinguish milkfish eggs from other more or less similar size pelagic eggs of fishes occurring in the same waters at the same time.

Sensitivity of fertilized milkfish (Chanos chanos Forsskal) eggs to mechanical shock and simulated transport Hilomen-Garcia, Grace V. (Elsevier, 1998)Naturally-spawned milkfish eggs are routinely subjected to physical manipulation during collection and transport. To avoid unnecessary mortalities, sensitivity of milkfish eggs to mechanical shock was determined at different ...

Emata, Arnil C. (Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, 1995)Most of the fish research at SEAFDEC AQD in 1992-1994 was on milkfish. Studies were conducted on year-round spawning through hormonal or environmental manipulation; optimum lipid and protein levels and ration size for ...
