Video Library Contents of Alevin to Fry Development

The following folders show the development of eggs on their way to becoming rainbow trout. Each folder contains one or more video files showing how Eggs/Alevins behave at different stages in the process:   

Delivered Eggs Hatched Eggs (Alevins 0% developed)Fry (100% developed). 

We use the day the eggs hatch as the zero point in the % developed scale. The amount of time between egg delivery and hatch will depend on individual aquaria temperature. However, unlike the day scale, the % development should be independent of different aquaria running conditions.

To best view the developmental changes in the alevin, first download all the contents of the library folder to your computer. If you're unsure how to download files from Google Drive, please see the instructions at the bottom of this page.

Once downloaded to your computer, use your computers video player to arrange the files on your computer screen and play simultaneously to compare similar degrees of time lapse. Notice the changes between 10% changes may be subtle.

If you are actively running an aquarium and want to know when your Alevins will be xx% developed, use the SU Excel program that you can download from the documentation part of the website (item7). Remember not all alevins will be at the same degree of development but your observations should show something close to the library videos

If you publish any of the files from this library you must identify the source as Jim Scherer @ Grizzly Peak Fly Fishers.
