Associated characteristics

Species Development state Trait Primary Data Secondary Data
Dicentrarchus labrax Egg Temperature for incubation Nowadays,the application of a low temperature (15°C vs 20°C) during the embryonic, yolk-sac larval and/or larval phase in Mediterranean hatcheries has been proven to be efficient not only in decreasing the ratio of female sea bass and the growth potential of reared populations,but also in decreasing the occurrence of hemal lordosis that develops during the subsequent juvenile phase. 15.0 °C
Dicentrarchus labrax Egg Temperature for incubation Incubated at 15 and 20°C 15.0 °C
Dicentrarchus labrax Larvae Full yolk-sac resorption The differences between the mortality rates of the different temperature treatments were expressed at the end of yolk-sac larval stage (4-7 days post-hatching) 5.5 °C * day
Dicentrarchus labrax Spawning conditions Spawning season Reproduction in sea bass takes place in winter, when water temperature is between 11 to 15°C ['January', 'February', 'March']
