The influence of influence on fish eggs and larrvae is briefly described from an autecological viewpoint. Temperaturemay have lethal or sub-lethal effects as well as pacing metabolism, other physiological resposes and behaviour. It influences body size, growth differentiation of muscle and meristic characters. Increase of temperature, as would occur with global warming, will change the timing of ecological events such as the spring plankton outburst so influencing the match or mismatch of larvae with their food supply and their predators.
