Embryonic, larval, and juvenile development of the marine atherinid Atherinomorus duodecimalis are described from laboratory-reared specimens. The eggs, measuring 1.15–1.24 mm in diameter, were demersal and almost spherical in shape with numerous chorionic filaments. Hatching occurred 7 or 8 days after spawning, the newly hatched larvae measuring 4.5–5.1 mm in body length (BL) and having 5 + 34 = 39 myomeres. Notochord flexion started at 6.9 mm BL and finished at 8.3 mm BL. Aggregate numbers of… CONTINUE READING
