Although marble goby is a freshwater species, some are known to stay in brackish water
during their early life stage. Also, it has been reported that growth and survival of artificial
produced larvae is better in 10 psu than in freshwater (FW). However, the suitable conditions
for embryonic development and early larval stage remained unknown. To improve hatching
and early larval rearing technique, a series of experiments was carried out to determine the
optimum salinity and temperature for eggs and larvae.
