Abstract
Walleye Stizostedion vitreum and sauger Stizostedion canadense eggs were exposed to temperatures ranging from 6 to 21C to determine temperature effects on fertilization, incubation, and fry survival. Optimum fertilization temperatures were 6-12C for walleye and 9C for sauger. Optimum incubation temperatures were 9-15C for both walleye and saugar. When acclimated at 10-26C, the 96-h upper lethal temperatures for sauger juveniles was 26.6-30.4C, in order as with the walleye.
