Milkfish (Chanos chanos) aquaculture hasa long antiquity on the island of Nauru(Pacific Ocean), predating European contact.Fry were caught in the surf and transferred tobrackish water ponds in the island's interior.While most of the fry died, large numberssurvived. They were harvested when the milkfishreached a body weight of abut 2 pounds. Thispaper describes the traditional approaches toacquaculture and puts them into a moderncontext.

New Species for Coastal Aquaculture in the Tropical Pacific – Constraints, Prospects and Considerations

Coastal aquaculture in the Pacific will need to focus either on species of high value, or those that yield non-perishable products, to overcome several constraints, including, transport problems, fragile ecosystems, lack of suitable sites, limited economies, and the effects of customary marine tenure on access to growout sites.

Nutritional condition of larval milkfish,Chanos chanos, occurring in the surf zone

Although total length of the wild-larvae did not show serial changes, their otolith increment counts showed continuous increases, indicating that the larvae sojourned in the surf zone for several days, and milkfish larvae remaining in the Surf Zone were concluded as being under insufficient nutritional conditions.
