Respirometry (MO2) in embryonic Pacific herring

These data were collected at Shannon Point Marine Center in Washington, U.S.A. in March, 2021. Embryos were reared at either 10C (ambient), 12C, 14C, or 16C  and at either ~500 pCO2 uatm (ambient) or ~2000 pCO2 uatm (heightened). These data measure the oxygen consumption rates (MO2)  response of winter-spawned Pacific herring embryos to variations in rearing temperature and pCO2 levels. The results evaluate if rearing conditions affect survival during a marine heatwave and the CTmax temperature and duration at which survival diminishes.
