MetadataShow full item record
Chub Leuciscus cephalus (L.) is a rheophilic cyprinid which prefers lotic habitat conditions, shallow water (0.1–0.3 m) and gravel banks with moderate to high water flow (0.15–0.75m s–1) for spawning. The aim of the research was to determine the basic quality parameters water for chub spawning and adequate conditions for eggs and larval growth. Artificial reproduction of chub was studied during one subsequent reproductive season. Chub reproduction was conducted in two different variations. Spawners were caught in June from natural waters (Izgare i Sesalska reka). Fish were transported to the hatchery and kept in tank (1000 l). The second group was spawned on catching location and eggs were putted in aquarium for develop.
