Survival and Development of Lake Trout ( Salvelinus namaycush ) embryos in an Acidified Lake in Northwestern Ontario [pdf]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Survival and development of lake trout (salvelinus namaycush) embryos from L223 in the Experimental Lakes Area, northwestern Ontario, were evaluated from 1979 (pH 5.6) to 1982 (pH 5.1). Survival of L223 embryos was not significantly correlated to lake pH during experimental acidification. Also, embryo mortality in L223 was not significantly different from that of lake trout embryos in two reference lakes, L224 and L468. Survival of L223 embryos was not improved when they were incubated in nonacidified lakes. Embryo mortality was highest in all lakes (33-81%) within 15 d of fertilization. Mortality was negligible from Day 15 until the termination of the seasonal observations (Day 120 or 150). High variability in embryo survival existed between individual females within a single lake. The mean size of eggs from L223 lake trout decreased significantly from 1979 to 1982. Recruitment failures occurred in L223 from 1980 to 1982. It is hypothesized that trout recruitment failure in L223 occurred between the posthatching period (spring) and actual recruitment into the population as young-of-the-year (fall) and that embryo mortality in this lake was not critical to population recruitment.
