Many of the world's cultured species are euryhaline, additional information on the effects of salinity on nutritional physiology can therefore shed light on the possible interactions between osmoregulation and feed utilization and thus increase our understanding on the nutritional and ecological physiology of euryhaline fish species such as milkfish.
Application of multiple regression models indicated that fish growth (weight gain) is significantly (P<0.05) correlated with [NO.sub.3]-N, Kjeldahl nitrogen, o-[PO.sub.4], [SO.sub.4], TDS, hardness, conductivity, alkalinity and turbidity, clearly revealing that milkfish is a euryhaline fish species, highly tolerant to high hardness and thus its growth appears to be significantly correlated with the trophic status of the ponds.
In euryhaline fish, the glomerular filtration rate and urine flow changes in the direction of ion concentrations, which means that it passes from a lower saline ion concentration to a higher one and vice versa.
The fish assemblage of Sohs Chico subestuary is typical of the Uruguayan coast estuarine systems and was characterized by the presence of euryhaline fishes, target species for Uruguay fisheries and was home to rare species.
