Laboratory study on the effects of rearing temperature on American glass eels, Anguilla rostrata

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

Data were collected on American glass eels (Anguilla rostrata) to determine optimal thermal conditions for laboratory rearing and aquaculture. American glass eels (Anguilla rostrata) were housed in buckets for 3 weeks at 14, 18, 22, or 26°C (n=5 buckets/treatment) to determine optimal juvenile rearing temperature in the laboratory. Initial weight (g) was recorded for each bucket. During the 3 week experimental period, data was collected on water temperature (°C), mortality, and the presence of gas bubbles. Water samples were taken to measure ammonia (mg/L) following the completion of the experiment. Final eel length (mm) and wet weight (g) were recorded for all eels in the study.
