Morphological and physiological parameters of developing embryos of Atlantic herring (Clupea harengus) incubated under Ocean Acidification and Warming conditions.


To study the effects of Ocean Acidification and Warming on the embryonic development of Atlantic herring (Clupea harengus), fertilized eggs were incubated to three temperatures (6-10-14°C) and two PCO2 (400 and 110 µatm) until hatch. At the 50% eye pigmentation stage, we measured whole-embryo oxygen consumption rates (MO2) and mitochondrial respiration (ETS and the relative contribution of Complex I and Complex II to it). At hatch, we measured hatching success, larval size and deformities.
