Geoduck Egg Development - 3 days later
Today we took a look under the scope of the eggs in the silos from Friday’s egg development trial (Notebook post).
Looking at the eggs
I didn’t really look at the ones that were fertilized.
Benoit and I looked at eggs from the three silos that were not fertilized (although I did see polar bodies, cleavage).
|Treatment group (all not fertilized)||D-hinge?||Notes|
|H50||yes||don’t look great; lots of ciliates; some trochophores|
|C||maybe||lots of ciliates; remnants of trochophores; potential D-hinges, but hard to know because a lot of things could have been eaten|
|50||no||some trochophores; lots of ciliates|
