Yolk sac fry of Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus

The photo shows freshly hatched yolk sac fry of Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus. Yolks provide the main nutrition to this early larval stage. The rate and duration of yolk consumption will be determined based on water temperature. Afterwards, yolk-sac fry will turn to swim-up fry.

Note: We decided not to watermark the photos in order not to upset its clarity. However, we trust you will notify us if you wish to use a picture or more. This will be appreciated.
