Specifics of the reproductive system in epinephelus aeneus and epinephelus alexandrinus serranidae from the southeastern mediterranean

, : Specifics of the reproductive system in epinephelus aeneus and epinephelus alexandrinus serranidae from the southeastern mediterranean. Voprosy Ikhtiologii 24(4): 597-600

Data were presented on gonad structure, maturity stages and fecundity in E. aeneus and E. alexandrinus. Both species first function as females, then ovary reversion to testes occurs. E. aeneus fecundity increased along with an increase in fish length and wt [weight]. E. alexandrinus fecundity decreased with fish growth.

The histological analysis of gonads has shown that ovarian and testicular tissues are intermingled in both species, which start functioning as females and later ovary reversal to testes takes place. The fecundity was found to increase in E. aeneus...
