Summary

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.
