Abstract

Oxygen uptakes, dry weights and energy contents of herring Clupea harengus were measured periodically from the time of egg fertilization to the end of the yolk-sac stage (without added food). Temperature of incubation (3.5-17 degrees C) had little effect on efficiency of conversion of egg reserves to body material. (C) 1997 The Fisheries Society of the British Isles.
