High Quality Milk Fish For Sale

The milkfish (Chanos chanos) is the sole living species in the family Chanidae. However, there are at least five extinct genera from the Cretaceous.

The species has many common names. The Hawaiian name for the fish is awa, and in Tahitian it is ava. It is called bangús in the Philippines, where it is popularly known as the national fish, although the National Commission for Culture and the Arts has stated that this is not the case as it has no basis in Philippine law. In the Nauruan language, it is referred to as ibiya. Milkfish is also called bandeng or bolu in Indonesia.

Chanos chanos occurs in the Indian Ocean and across the Pacific Ocean, from South Africa to Hawaii and the Marquesas, from California to the Galapagos, north to Japan, south to Australia. Milkfishes commonly live in tropical offshore marine waters around islands and along continental shelves, at depths of 1 to 30 m. They also frequently enter estuaries and rivers.

Description of the Milk Fish

This species looks like a typical silvery-colored fish. It has an elongated, torpedo-shaped body. The dorsal, or upper side of its body is darker than the ventral, or underside. Its tail fin is relatively long compared to the rest of its body.

On average, these fish measure about three feet long. However, the largest individuals reach nearly six feet in length.

Interesting Facts About the Milk Fish

At a glance, this fish appears somewhat unremarkable. Learn more about what makes this species so interesting, below.

  • A Fish of Many Names – People catch and eat this species in many different regions. Consequently, people in these different regions call this fish by many different names, including ava, bangus, ibiya, bolu, and more.
  • Fish Farming – To help keep up with the demand for this fish, people have developed commercial fish farms in the Philippines, Taiwan, Indonesia, and more. Depending on the facility, they keep and breed the fish in concrete tanks, sea cages, or large ponds.
  • Multiple Methods – After catching the fish, people have multiple methods of processing it for consumption. Some smoke, ferment, or dry the meat. Others eat it fresh or freeze it, and some even can and bottle the meat.
  • Bandeng Presto – The Javan people prepare this fish into a dish known as bandeng presto. The dish involves pressure cooking the fish for long periods until the bones of the fish become soft and edible.

Habitat of the Milk Fish

This fish lives in different habitats depending on its age. The young are born in the ocean, but make their way into estuaries, mangroves, bays, and lakes to continue their growth. As adults they live in tropical coastal seas. They prefer shallow waters near reefs to forage for food.

Distribution of the Milk Fish

You can find this species in coastal regions throughout the Indian and Pacific Oceans. They range from the coast of South Africa, up along the southern coast of Asia, and throughout the Indo-Pacific islands to Australia. Their range also extends to Hawaii, California, and the west coast of Mexico, Central America, and South America.

Diet of the Milk Fish

This fish is an omnivore, which means that they eat both plants and other animals. Their exact diet varies based on the age of the fish.

Newly hatched larvae eat zooplankton, while juveniles hunt for bacteria, algae, worms, tiny shrimp, and carrion. Adults eat all of the above, but they also prey on the larval forms of other sea creatures, including juvenile herrings, sardines, and more.

Milk Fish and Human Interaction

Humans rely on this fish species quite heavily as a source of food. Commercial fisheries bring in several hundred thousand tons per year.

Though heavy fishing poses some threat, the more pressing concern is the collection of larval young to supply fish farms. However, for now the species has strong population numbers and the IUCN lists them as Least Concern.

Domestication

Though people raise this fish in fish farming operations, humans have not truly domesticated this species.

Does the Milk Fish Make a Good Pet

No, this fish does not make a good pet. They grow too large for the average home aquarium.

Milk Fish Care

Care varies based on the fishery setting. Fish farmers keep these creatures in a variety of different housing, including sea pens, concrete tanks, and large ponds.

Some fisheries breed and raise the fish. However, other fisheries capture the larval young from the wild and raise them in the tanks until they have reached harvesting age.

Behavior of the Milk Fish

Researchers simply have not studied this species enough to understand its behavior fully. What we do know, is that they live in social groups known as schools.

Adults spend much of their time near the coasts in tropical seas. They forage for food in reefs and lagoons. Though the young eventually make their way into estuaries and mangroves, the adults breed in shallow waters near the coast.

Reproduction of the Milk Fish

These fish reproduce via spawning, where fertilization occurs outside of the body. Females release their eggs into the water column, and the males release their sperm to fertilize them. A single female can produce up to six million eggs in a spawning season.

It takes about a day for the eggs to hatch, and about a week for the young to make their way into the estuaries and mangroves. The young fish do not reach sexual maturity until they reach about three years of age.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fish Coffee

Reviewed in the United States on August 25, 2020

Out of all of the milk available out there at this time, this is the brand that I trust the most. However, I prefer to NOT have the DHA. I have a very sensitive nose/taste buds, and I don’t like to sip my coffee and taste fish because I used the milk with DHA. Fish is a very powerful flavor that is hard to get rid of. I know it’s good for you, but I don’t want fish flavor in anything but fish and dishes that are intended to contain fish. It’s getting hard to find the non-DHA kind, and I’m not even sure it’s available any more. I admit that most people won’t notice it, but some of us do. I know that it’s not technically fish, but it’s algae from the ocean and still tastes like fish.

I LOVE milk. This brand is my most favorite, it tastes richer, fresher and overall just better than Organic Valley(and the others at WF). Altho I do buy OV in the gal size 90% of the time do to cost and Horizon not offered in gallon containers. But will buy Horizon when I want to treat myself or when a gallon isn’t available during Covid19 shortages.

This organic milk is great tasting and available in Whole Milk and 2% which I use. But here, I gave it a 4 Star rating because of the cost. This milk is available in local grocers for $2 less than Amazon cost. After discovering this, I buy it at the local grocer since.

It’s good quality milk. Can’t think of any downsides, but I also don’t particularly like drinking milk. I use it to cook.
