quorum sensing fish embryos

Posted by treonsverdery , 05 February 2008 · 200 views

I think if The newly-hatched young of oviparous fish released zooplankton attractant as a group they could attract zooplankton n have a much higher survival rate; kind of like quorum sensing
just thinking of ways to build up fish amounts

The newly-hatched young of oviparous fish are called larvae. They are usually poorly formed, carry a large yolk sac (from which they gain their nutrition) and are very different in appearance to juvenile and adult specimens of their species. The larval period in oviparous fish is relatively short however (usually only several weeks), and larvae rapidly grow and change appearance and structure (a process termed metamorphosis) to resemble juveniles of their species. During this transition larvae use up their yolk sac and must switch from yolk sac nutrition to feeding on zooplankton prey, a process which is dependent on zooplankton prey densities and causes many mortalities in larvae.
