Associated characteristics

Species Development state Trait Primary Data Secondary Data
Salvelinus fontinalis Egg Incubation time Hatching started on day 55, and 50% hatching occurred on day 58 55.0 days
Salvelinus fontinalis Egg Temperature for incubation 9.2 ± 1.92 [range 4.5-13°C] 9.2 °C
Salvelinus fontinalis Egg Degree-days for incubation 491 [Hatching started] to 523 [50% hatching] 491.0 °C * day
Salvelinus fontinalis Larvae Onset of exogeneous feeding The first external feeding activities of the fish larvae start when the larvae swim up. Observations have demonstrated that the larva has a piece of yolk when swimming up, so in trout fisheries the first external feeding starts when over 30% of the larvae swim up. 30.0 °C * day
