Associated characteristics

Species Development state Trait Primary Data Secondary Data
Perca flavescens Spawning conditions Spawning temperature At water temperatures less than 17°C 17.0 °C
Perca flavescens Spawning conditions Spawning season Yellow perch typically spawn in South Dakota lakes and wetlands from mid-April to mid-May […] On Lake Madison during 2000 and 2001, egg deposition on submerged conifer bundles occurred over 3-15 days periods from 21 April to 5 May at water temperatures between 7 and 17°C, and no new egg deposition was observed after the first week of May ['April', 'May']
Perca flavescens Larvae Temperature during larval development Peak larval yellow perch densities generally occurred during late May or early June when surface temperatures were 12-19°C 15.5 °C
Perca flavescens Larvae Initial larval size The TL of larval yellow perch ranged from 4 to 11 mm on the initial dates of capture 4.0 mm
