Early Life History of Limanda yokohamae (Günther)

Conference paper


Aquaculture is becoming an increasingly important industry in Japan The Japanese government is interested in developing the culture of flatfishes of which Limanda yokohamae, the mud dab, is one of the most important species taken by gillnet in coastal waters. Its potential use in coastal aquaculture led to the present investigations on egg and larval development. Natural spawning grounds of the mud dab are found in the coarse sand among rocky reefs, where the demersal eggs adhere to each other and to the coarse sand.
