Abstract

This paper describes the early life development of Krbava minnow. Basic morphometric and me-ristic measures of larvae from aquarium spawning were taken according to Kovač (2000) modi-fied method during 51 days of observation after spawning. The fastest growth was recorded in the first fifteen days from spawning. Yolk sac disappears until the tenth day after spawning. The opening of the mouth happens on the tenth day after hatching. The completion of the formation of soft ray fins happened on the fortieth day after spawning. Domination of the preanal body lenght over the total lenght of the fish takes place in all the larvae in fourteen days after spawning. The dorsal and anal fins of larvae remain continuously connected to the caudal fin in the period of observation. Number of soft ray fins corresponds holotype.
