Scholarcy highlights

  • The basic developmental mechanisms of teleosts are similar, but there are differences with respect to the timing of developmental events
  • Developmental status at hatch differs between species and the duration of the yolk sac period varies
  • Main organs and organ systems become functional by first feeding and differentiate during the larval stage and metamorphosis
  • Information is still lacking on early functionality of endocrine and immunocompetent tissues and organs, areas that deserve future focus
