Associated characteristics

Species Development state Trait Primary Data Secondary Data
Morone saxatilis Egg Incubation time Larvae hatched within 3 days post-fertilization at 16.1°C 3.0 days
Morone saxatilis Egg Egg Buoyancy Most eggs were maintained in the water column by the upwelling current generated by micropore aeration around the central standpipe and the 1.1 liter per min circular flow of incoming water below the surface No category
Morone saxatilis Larvae Temperature during larval development The water temperature increased from 15.7 to 18.7°C during the 2-week experiment 15.7 °C
Morone saxatilis Larvae Full yolk-sac resorption In stripped bass, inflated swibladders are first detected at 5-7 days post-hatching (dph) at 18°C, which coincides with the completion of yolk absorption, initiation of first feeding and peak larval specific gravities 6.0 °C * day
Morone saxatilis Larvae Onset of exogeneous feeding Larvae were fed Artemia from 6 days post-hatching. Larvae with food in their gut were first observed at 7 dph in the black tanks and one day later in white tanks 6.0 °C * day
