Associated characteristics

Species Development state Trait Primary Data Secondary Data
Perca flavescens Egg Incubation time Hatching occurred within 12-14 days of fertilization 13.0 days
Perca flavescens Larvae Initial larval size Each model simulation model began with 1000 larvae, and initial size was randomly assigned to each larva from a normal distribution (mean = 5.7 mm, SD = 0.3 mm). 5.7 mm
Perca flavescens Larvae Temperature during larval development Larvae were maintained in the lab in a 2.4 m diameter tank at 15-18°C under flow-through conditions 16.5 °C
Perca flavescens Larvae Onset of exogeneous feeding Larvae were initially fed a tank culture of rotifers and small zooplankton four to six times per day. Starting five days posthatch (dph), larvae were fed Artemia nauplii four times per day (at 15-18°C). 16.5 °C * day
