The embryonic development of Amur carp (Cyprinus carpio haematopterus) throughout the monsoon and post-monsoon seasons is compared in this research work. During the regular and late breeding seasons, the study identifies the most critical features of the monsoon season that affect Amur carp embryonic development. The effects of temperature changes on embryonic development were evaluated by observing the morphological characteristics of the embryos and identifying the embryonic stages that eventually determined the impacts of temperature changes on embryonic development. According to present study, the development stages of eggs in the regular season are shorter than in the late monsoon season. Initially, eggs grow at the same time, but late monsoon eggs require more time to develop.
