Sorry, no etymologies found.
That looks similar to a milkfish or what we call bangus Chanos chanos.
Our particular study deals with burong bangus, a fermented rice-fish product using milkfish, Chanos chanos, or loangus in the vernacular.
A fish often used in the production of buro is milk fish (Chanos chanos), a commonly cultured brackish water fish of the region.
This is particularly true in the case of Bangus (milk fish/Chanos chanos).
