Associated characteristics

Species Development state Trait Primary Data Secondary Data
Perca flavescens Larvae Initial larval size The TL of larval yellow perch ranged from 4 to 11 mm on the initial dates of capture 11.0 mm
Perca flavescens Larvae Temperature during larval development Peak larval yellow perch densities generally occurred during late May or early June when surface temperatures were 12-19°C 15.5 °C
Perca flavescens Spawning conditions Spawning season Yellow perch typically spawn in South Dakota lakes and wetlands from mid-April to mid-May […] On Lake Madison during 2000 and 2001, egg deposition on submerged conifer bundles occurred over 3-15 days periods from 21 April to 5 May at water temperatures between 7 and 17°C, and no new egg deposition was observed after the first week of May ['April', 'May']
Perca flavescens Spawning conditions Spawning temperature At water temperatures less than 17°C 17.0 °C
