Coregonus clupeaformis Larvae Larvae behaviour Throughout the trial, larvae in all tanks formed a school only when startled but then soon disassociated Demersal
Coregonus clupeaformis Larvae Temperature during larval development Trial 1: Rearing temperatures ranged from 11.0 to 13.5°C from days 1 to 20 and from 13.5 to 14.5°C from days 20 to 50. Trial 2: rearing temperatures ranged from 7.2 to 12.2°C from days 1 to 36 and from 12.2 to 17.2°C from days 36 to 50 1.0 °C
Coregonus clupeaformis Larvae Onset of exogeneous feeding In trial (at 11-13.5°C), lake whitefish were feeding in all tanks by day 3. In trial 2 (at 7.2-12.2°C), lake whitefish larvae were feeding in all tanks by day 3, but feed was not observed in the digestive tract until day 5 12.25 °C * day
