Associated characteristics

Species Development state Trait Primary Data Secondary Data
Tinca tinca Egg Egg adhesiveness The methods tested have shown its fesibility to reduce or almost eliminate egg stickiness. In the tannic acid treatments, few eggs stuck together and some were adhered to the incubator walls. However, in alcalse treatments, eggs neither stick together nor adhered to the incubator walls. Adhesive
Tinca tinca Egg Incubation time Hatching begins 36 hours after fertilization at 24.5°C 36.0 days
Tinca tinca Egg Temperature for incubation Several authors have used Weiss jars or Zug bottles of 2-10 L in volume at different temperatures ranging from 19 to 25°C. Eggs were incubated at 24.5°C 6.0 °C
Tinca tinca Larvae Initial larval size Larvae at 5-days post-hatch have a total length (TL) of 4.82 mm and a weight (W) of 0.47 mg 4.82 mm
