The aim of this research is study the effects of hydration/ dehydration cycles on the hatching percentage, survival and growth of Artemia parthenogenetica cysts. Experiments were carried out in three treatments from one to three hydration/ dehydration cycles. Then cysts hatching percentage of each treatment was determined in 3 replicates according to the standard method. Survival and growth were measured on days 8, 11, 15, 20, and 25 of growth. The results indicated that two hydration/ dehydration cycles nearly increases hatching percentage and survival of Artemia parthenogenetica cysts (86.38%) comparing to control group (85.79%). Excess hydration/dehydration cycles cause a reduction in survival percentage. Therefore the survival percentage in three hydration/dehydration cycles is significantly lower than other treatments. But growth of Artemia parthenogenetica is not significantly affected by cyclic hydration/dehydration. To sum up, in Artemia parthenogenetica, against other species of Artemia, hydration/dehydration cycles are not essential, and performing it decreases cyst hatching percentage. Keywords: Artemia parthenogenetica, Hatching, Cyst, Hydration/ Dehydration. ...

Pulsed flow-through cultivation of Margaritifera margaritifera : effects of water source and food quantity on the survival and growth of juveniles Hyvärinen, Heini S. H.; Chowdhury, M. Motiur R.; Taskinen, Jouni (Springer, 2021)Conservation of the endangered freshwater pearl mussel (FPM) includes artificially rearing juveniles, but the pulsed flow-through (PFT) method, enabling the continuous renewal of water and food in culture containers, has ...
Cyclical and stochastic thermal variability affects survival and growth in brook trout Pisano, Olivia M.; Kuparinen, Anna; Hutchings, Jeffrey A. (Pergamon Press, 2019)Directional changes in temperature have well-documented effects on ectotherms, yet few studies have explored how increased thermal variability (a concomitant of climate change) might affect individual fitness. Using a ...
Lifting the Vendace, Coregonus albula, on the Life Table : Survival, Growth and Reproduction in Different Life-Stages during Very High and Low Abundance Regimes Marjomäki, Timo J.; Valkeajärvi, Pentti; Karjalainen, Juha (Finnish Zoological and Botanical Publishing Board, 2021)We analyzed the variability in vendace population parameters in the context of a life table. Parameters related to growth, fecundity and survival were estimated for post-recruitment (age > 1 growing season) life stages of ...
Developmental plasticity of mitochondrial aerobic metabolism, growth and survival by prenatal glucocorticoids and thyroid hormones : an experimental test in wild great tits Cossin-Sevrin, Nina; Hsu, Bin-Yan; Marciau, Coline; Viblanc, Vincent A.; Ruuskanen, Suvi; Stier, Antoine (The Company of Biologists, 2022)Developmental plasticity is partly mediated by transgenerational effects, including those mediated by the maternal endocrine system. Glucocorticoid and thyroid hormones may play central roles in developmental programming ...
Simulated eutrophication and browning alters zooplankton nutritional quality and determines juvenile fish growth and survival Taipale, Sami; Kahilainen, Kimmo Kalevi; Holtgrieve, Gordon William; Peltomaa, Elina Talvikki (Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2018)The first few months of life is the most vulnerable period for fish and their optimal hatching time with zooplankton prey is favored by natural selection. Traditionally, however, prey abundance (i.e., zooplankton density) ...
