Associated characteristics

Species Development state Trait Primary Data Secondary Data
Cyprinus carpio Larvae Temperature during larval development Reared at 20°C 20.0 °C
Cyprinus carpio Larvae Full yolk-sac resorption For the first three days post hatching, common carp rely exclusively on endogenous food resources (yok sac). The 8-9 days old larvae have usually completely resorbed yolk sac, and feed exclusively on exogenous food 8.5 °C * day
Cyprinus carpio Larvae Onset of exogeneous feeding At 20°C, inthe series A,the 4 days old larvae captured and ingested about 70% of prey, while the 7 days old ones,over 90% 20.0 °C * day
