Egg and larval traits were examined in a 3 x 3 diallel cross among striped bass, white bass, F1 hybrid females (striped bass female x white bass male) and reciprocal cross F1 hybrid males (white bass female x striped bass male). Heterosis was negative for yolk and total egg volumes and positive for male fertility. Striped bass additive effects were positive for larvae length and oil, yolk and total volumes of eggs, and negative for female fertility, body depth and swim bladder inflation.
