The parental effects on fertilization and early life history traits were studied in Atlantic halibut, Hippoglossus hippoglossus L. Sperm from 12 different males were used to fertilize eggs of two females in separate crosses. The fertilization success were generally high, above 80% of developing embryos at 16-cell stage in 20 of 24 crosses with an average of 85.9+/-17.6% and 87.2+/-16.5% for female A and female B, respectively. Corresponding hatching success was 74.8+/-17.7% and 41.6+/-20.1… CONTINUE READING
