Associated characteristics

Species Development state Trait Primary Data Secondary Data
Hypophthalmichthys molitrix Egg Incubation time Hatch from the envelopped at pahse 19 a day after fertilization (water temperature 26-28°C) 27.0 days
Hypophthalmichthys molitrix Egg Temperature for incubation The eggs were incubated in Weiss's apparatus under 27-28°C 27.5 °C
Hypophthalmichthys molitrix Larvae Initial larval size 5.2 mm at hatching 5.2 mm
Hypophthalmichthys molitrix Larvae Full yolk-sac resorption The larvae 2.5 days after hatching are at phase 23; their length is 7.4 mm. They begin to actively catch food oustide,but continue mostly to feed on yolk, which is present as relatively substantial residue 2.5 °C * day
