U. Bulanin, C.R. Saad, M.S. Kamarudin, R. Affandi and A. Sudaryono. 2005. Eggs and pre A�larvae developmentA�for humpback grouper, Cromileptes altivelis, (Valencee) larvae, Aquacultura Indonesiana, 6 (3): 115a��121. ThisA�experiment were conducted to determine the embryonic and pre-larvae development for humpback grouper,A�Cromileptes altivelis, under controlled condition. The above study was carried out from spawning of A�broodstocksA�to obtain the fertilized eggs till fully yolk sac and oil droplet absorption. The results showed that the mean diameterA�of humpback grouper egg was 828.69 i�� 45.91 i?�m. The fertilized eggs hatched in 20 hour 10 minutes at the temperatureA�of 27 to 28o C. The hatched larvae had a mean length of 1.86 mm, and a mean height of 0.460 mm. The yolk sacs andA�oil droplets were totally utilized after 63 and 65 hour after hatching (HAH), respectively. One day larvae had anA�average length and height of 2.253 mm, and 0.615 mm, respectively.
