Associated characteristics

Species Development state Trait Primary Data Secondary Data
Dicentrarchus labrax Egg Temperature for incubation Eggs were incubated at 16 ± 0.3°C 16.0 °C
Dicentrarchus labrax Larvae Temperature during larval development Reared at 15, 18 and 21°C 15.0 °C
Dicentrarchus labrax Larvae Onset of exogeneous feeding Feeding of cultured sea bass larvae has commonly begun at initiation of mouth opening (4 days after hatching). Initial feeding can be delayed 2-4 days without adversely affecting survival or growth of sea bass larvae if they are held at ambient temperature in dilute sea water 3.0 °C * day
