Lota lota Range from 10-11°C for the apperance of erythrocytes to 13°C for the onset of active swimming, and 15-16°C for the beginning of feeding 10.5 °C Kujawa, 2002
Lota lota Five constant temperatures of 12, 15, 18, 21 and 24°C (range ± 0.5°C), all in duplicate, were employed in the experiment. The fastest larval growth, either in terms of total length or body weight, was recorded for the temperature of 21°C, whereas at 12°C the larvae grew the slowest. A final survival rate of at least 90% was observed for the burbot reared at 12 and 15°C, this figure was significantly higher than at the other water temperatures. The fish reared at 12°C had the second highest survival rate at 72%. 12.0 °C Wolnicki, 2002
Lota lota Food intake by burbot larvae begins when water temperature is above 8°C. […] larvae could tolerate up to a temperature of 20°C. The temperature of spring water was 12 ± 1°C upon release of the larvae but gradually adjusted to 16 and 20°C. […] High survival of burbot larvae at a higher temperature in the first 10 days of the experiment suggests that embryos (incubation temperature before the hatching was 4 ± 1°C) and larvae differ in their physiological tolerances. [...] It seems that the most appropriate temperature for successful burbot larvae culture is ranged between 12 and 16°C, and represents a trade-off between faster growth with higher mortalities at higher temepratures and slow growth, but higher survival at lower temperatures. 12.0 °C Harzevili, 2004
