|Species||Development state||Trait||Primary Data||Secondary Data|
|Esox lucius||Spawning conditions||Spawning substrate||Grasses and sedges are preferred, but other vegetation may be used. The shelter provided by vegetation is essential for the larvae and young pike […] Pike can spawn over a range of macrophyte species. However, reed belts formed by Phragmites australis are a dominant feature in sheltered shores, bays and estuaries in wide regions of the northern Baltic Sea coast, and this common habitat serves as a major spawning and larval area for pike||Phytophils|
|Esox lucius||Spawning conditions||Spawning temperature||Warmed to 8-12°C […] when the water temperature reaches 10°C||10.0 °C|
|Esox lucius||Spawning conditions||Spawning depth||These reed belts extend from supra-littoral zone to a depth of usually 1-1.5 m||1.25 m|
|Esox lucius||Spawning conditions||Spawning season||In the northern areas, pike spawn after ice-break in the spring […] Mostly during May when water temperature reaches 10°C||['April', 'May', 'June']|
|Esox lucius||Larvae||Initial larval size||The larvae are 8-9 mm long after hatching||8.5 mm|
|Esox lucius||Larvae||Larvae behaviour||Remain attached to vegetation during the first 4-6 days. Thereafter, the larvae are 11-12 mm long, almost all of the yolk sac has been used, and they start to seek food||Demersal|
