Associated characteristics

Species Development state Trait Primary Data Secondary Data
Micropterus salmoides Egg Egg size after water-hardening Fertilized eggs were spehrical with a 1.5-2.5 mm diameter 2.0 mm
Micropterus salmoides Egg Egg adhesiveness Fertilized eggs were adhesive Adhesive
Micropterus salmoides Larvae Temperature during larval development Water temperature was maintained at 21°C 21.0 °C
Micropterus salmoides Larvae Sibling intracohort cannibalism During the indoor rearing, to reduce size variability and control cannibalism, it was necessary to submit fingerlings to frequent grading: the first at 150-200 mg; the second at 300 mg and third at 400 mg mean weight Present
Micropterus salmoides Spawning conditions Spawning season In the years 2001-2002, on a total of 20 couples/year, 16 and 15 broodstocks laid eggs respectively, from the half to the end of April at the water temperature of 19 ± 2°C ['April']
Micropterus salmoides Spawning conditions Spawning temperature At the water temperature of 19 ± 2°C 19.0 °C
