Associated characteristics

Species Development state Trait Primary Data Secondary Data
Tinca tinca Larvae Temperature during larval development Water temperature during sotcking was 22°C, then gradually increased immediatly after stocking, reaching 28°C within 48 h 22.0 °C
Tinca tinca Larvae Sibling intracohort cannibalism Unlike typical predatory fish such as northern pike Esox lucius that require, in order to avoid cannibalism, almost continuous intensive feeding throughout the rearing period, 24 h feeding or larval cyrpinids is generally not necessary Present
Tinca tinca Larvae Onset of exogeneous feeding The feeding was begun on day 6 after hatching when larval total length (TL +/-SD) averaged 4.53 +/- 0.16 mm 4.53 °C * day
