Grace’s Notebook: 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
