In the radiobiological studies of aquatic organisms, fish eggs are a favorite subject for experimental work because of easy availability of embryos and the possibility of observing the development of embryos within eggs. Data from Russian/FSU publications concerning the effects of ionizing radiation on the survival and development of fish eggs were compiled within the framework of the EC Project EPIC “Environmental Protection from Ionizing Contaminants in the Arctic" (2000-2003). Comparative analysis was performed for effects on roe of two representative fish species: cold-water fish salmon (Salmo salar), and pike (Esox lucius), which is widespread predatory fish from the temperate climatic zone.
