Rates of development, growth and yolk conversion efficiency were determined in larvae of the summer flounder Paralichtys dentatus at constant temperatures of 21 degrees, 16 degrees, 12 degrees and 5 degrees C and in temperature cycles of 21 degrees-16 degrees, 16 degrees-11 degrees, and 11 degrees-5 degrees C. In constant incubation temperatures, development rate increased with increasing temperature.
