Thermal Effects Of A Model Power Plant On The Hatching Success Of American Shad, Alosa Sapidissima, Eggs

A model power plant, constructed to simulate the time-temperature exposure histories experienced by organisms entrained in the intake of an actual plant, was used to study the thermal effects of an operating power plant on the hatching success of American shad, Alosa sapidissima, eggs. Eggs from a single female were divided into 5 sub-samples; two controls, and three experimental batches. One control was stocked immediately in a constant temperature bath. The second control was passed through the unheated plant to assess the mechanical effects of passage through the model plant on hatching...
