Perca flavescens Spawning conditions Spawning season March-April ['April', 'March']
Perca flavescens Larvae Temperature during larval development In general, water temperatures varied between 10 and 22°C and it is suspected that this range prevails in the shallow waters of the natural spawning grounds. In other studies, specimens were raised under hatchery conditions around 20°C 10.0 °C
