Abstract
    A yolk protein of about similar to 105 kDa is hydrolysed in correlation with the build up of a free amino acid pool during egg and yolksac larval development of five salmonid species. The timing and the quantities involved in these changes vary between the species. Thus, compared to the situation in extant marine teleosts with pelagic eggs, the basis seems to exist for the evolution of an adaptative mechanism that allowed teleosts to spread from freshwater to seawater some 100 million years ago.
