Relationships between temperature and mortality of eggs and survival of the larvae are described for the striped mullet Mugil cephalus L. Eggs were incubated at temperatures between 1.0 and 40.5C. Mortalities were least (4.2%) within the range 22.7-23.3C. Hatching time was inversely related to temperature.
