Abstract

The fry of milk fish Chanos chanos (Forskal), measuring 11-15 mm (13.5 mm mean length) obtained from the creeks and canals of Puthuvype area in the Vypeen Island have been used to study the electivity and food rations under laboratory conditions using rotifers, copepods, copepodites, copepod nauplii and Artemia nauplii as feed. The observations at 24 hour intervals lasted for 7 days in one set and 14 days in another set of experiments in different containers with 10 %, salinity. The survival rate was 100% during the period of observation.
