Abstract: The effects of five temperatures (10, 13, 16, 19 and 22 degrees C) on the survival, development and hatching time of fertilized hake eggs from a spontaneous spawning were studied. Significant differences (p < 0.05) were found between egg development at each temperature. The power law model provided good fits for the relationship between temperature and development time, with r(2) values higher than 0.96. Total egg mortality rates were high for all temperatures, with the lowest values observed at 12.7 degrees C (59\%). In contrast, eggs did not tolerate temperature above 22 degrees C. The time to complete stages I, II, III and IV showed significant differences (p> 0.05) between this study and previous result reported for hake eggs from northern stock. These differences could be related to the different thermal history of the eggs, experimental conditions or differences in the grouping of developmental stages. An extensive review of some hake species from the Merluccius genera showed a low variability in time to hatch at each temperature. (C) 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
