Abstract:

Walleye Sander vitreum eggs could be stored at 7° C for up to 30 h with 60% fertilization rates. Fertilization rates at 1 and 12° C fell to 17 and 5%, respectively. At spermatozoa : egg ratios <25 000 : 1, survival to the eyed stage declined precipitously. Beyond a ratio of 25 000 : 1, survival to the eyed stage did not increase >c. ∼ 70%. Therefore, a standard spermatozoa : egg ratio of 25 000 : 1 was established and is recommended for studies concerning fertilizing success.
