Associated characteristics

Species Development state Trait Primary Data Secondary Data
Tinca tinca Egg Egg adhesiveness The stikiness of eggs was removed using a milk solution for 40 minutes and than by means of a clay suspension for 10 minutes, both procedures at 20°C Non-Adhesive
Tinca tinca Egg Incubation time 71.2 hours [20°C], 48.5 h [22.5°C], 36.3 [25°C], 30 [27.5°C] 71.2 days
Tinca tinca Egg Temperature for incubation Normal cleavage of blastodisc occurs at temperatures rangin 16.5-31.2°C. The mean duration of one mitotic cycle was stated within this temperature and graphically analyzed the optimal temperatures were 20-25°C, the "zero-development' was 14°C 23.85 °C
Tinca tinca Larvae Temperature during larval development The lower limit of the tolerated temperature for growth is c. 18-19°C, the orpimal temperature range for length growth is 22-26°C, and probably even higher for the growth of body weight 18.5 °C
Tinca tinca Larvae Onset of exogeneous feeding [Duration of development from activation to onset of exogeneous feeding, in parenthesis time for incubation: 224.6 (71.2) at 20°C, 159.2 (48.5) at 22.5°C, 131.5 (36.3) at 25°C, 125.4 (30) at 27.5°C] 224.6 °C * day
Tinca tinca Spawning conditions Spawning season End of June, Begiining of July ['June', 'July']
