Associated characteristics

Species Development state Trait Primary Data Secondary Data
Sander lucioperca Larvae Temperature during larval development Optimum temperatures are in the range of 16-20°C. Growth is rather poor at 16-18°C and best between 26-30°C 18.0 °C
Sander lucioperca Larvae Reaction to light Although there is a short stage of positive phototropism in fry, older pike-perch generally prefer dim light Photopositive
Sander lucioperca Larvae Sibling intracohort cannibalism This includes the onset of cannbalism due to the size differences bewteen indifviduals of this species. Bi-modality of size frequency distributions is a well-known phenomenon in this species. An earlier start of cannibaslim was observed in pike-perch of smaller size (less than 30 mm) fed in laboratory experiments using artifical diets, however cannibalism ceases at aout 5 cm body length (1.2 g).
