Larval Development of the Cyprinid Fish Barbus sharpeyi (Gunther, 1874)
Ali Attaala Mukhaysin and L.A. Jawad

Abstract:
The early development of the cyprinid fish Barbus sharpeyi, from fertilization to juvenile, was recorded using living material. Three embryonic steps, one free embryo and four larval steps were identified. Hatching occurred between 70-79 h (post-activation); the free embryo period was extremely short in duration (5-13 h). The transition from larva to juvenile occurred in 50 days when the fish were fully scaled and the lateral line organ was clearly visible. Indication of different degrees of complexity of physiological and morphological developments within each step were clear through both embryo and larva periods of development as steps increased in duration.
