Associated characteristics

Species Development state Trait Primary Data Secondary Data
Dicentrarchus labrax Egg Incubation time Meadian hatch at 72 hours at 16°C 72.0 days
Dicentrarchus labrax Egg Temperature for incubation 16°C 16.0 °C
Dicentrarchus labrax Larvae Temperature during larval development For the first 20 days of larval culture the water temperature was maintained at 16-18°C. Thereafter the temperature was increased at 19°C 17.0 °C
Dicentrarchus labrax Larvae Sibling intracohort cannibalism Sea bass fingerlings, if not fed early in the morning, showed increased cannibalistic activities; 37% of the larger fish filled their stomachs with smaller siblings. The predator must be twice the length of the victim for ingestion. The extent of cannibalism is found to depend on feeding frequency Present
Morone saxatilis Larvae Sibling intracohort cannibalism Cannibalism can be a serious problem in intensive culture of striped bass [could start when striped bass larvae were only 6 days Present
Sander vitreus Larvae Sibling intracohort cannibalism Cannibalism among other piscivorous fish species such as walleye can greattl reduce production during intensive culture in floating cages Present
