Morphogenesis in hatchery-reared larvae of the black rockfish,Sebastes schlegeli, and its relationship to the development of swimming and feeding functions

Abstract

The developmental sequence of morphological characteristics related to swimming and feeding functions was investigated in hatchery-reared larvae and juveniles ofSebastes schlegeli, a viviparous scorpaenid. The fish were extruded at an early larval stage, when the mean body size was 6.23 mm TL. Fin-ray rudiments became visible at 9.0 mm TL in the dorsal and… (More)
