Optimum temperature and salinity conditions for viable hatch were studied for turbot (Scophthalmus maximus L.) from the North Sea. Temperatures ranging from 6 to 22°C and salinities from 5 to 35‰ were used. Optimum conditions were observed to be between 12 and 18°C at salinities between 20 and 35‰. This contrasted with corresponding data for turbot from the southern Baltic proper, according to which survival sharply decreased in temperatures below 14°C and was high in salinities of 10 to 15… CONTINUE READING
