The present study of the effect of different hydrogen-ion concentrations (pH 5.5-8.3) on the embryonic development of the sea-trout Salmo trutta L. from the Baltic Sea has shown that incubation of eggs in buffers, irrespective of the pH of these solutions and the time when the eggs were transferred to them, is lethiferous to the embryos. The death of the embryos is preceded by the disturbance of the organogenetic process, the derangement of the physiological functions of the organism, and the inhibition of the growth rate.
