Study of the effect of a range of salinities on growth and survival of postlarvae of Paralichthys lethostigma Jordan and Gilbert under laboratory conditions indicates good survival without acclimatization in salinities ranging from 0‰ to 30‰. Growth appears to be influenced by salinity with greater weight increase per unit of time occurring under more saline conditions.
