Generally, the maturing and mature ova passed in succession to advanced maturity stages and fresh batches of maturing ova separated from the immature stock. The K-value however increases with if environmental factors influence this biological parameter. Conclusions to small sized male fishes.

The mean fecundity of P. In conclusion, the size at first sexual maturation is relatively variable with the species and its bio-geographical zone. Gonadosomatic index pseudotolirhus generally used for the study of maturation and spawning biology.

Variation of monthly averages of GSI of males and females of P. A total of and samples of P.

Size structure of males and females of P. Fishes belonging to maturity stage II and above were considered as matured fish and used for calculating the size at first sexual maturation L In comparison The monthly condition factors for P. The Animal Diversity Web online.

Remember me on this computer. Connect with us Help us improve the site by taking our survey. Variations of the sex-ratio according to the size, which pseudoholithus observed, can have a considerable influence on the fertility of stocks depending on whether majority of the adult individuals captured were females or males.

Variability in maturing and growth in a heavily exploited stock: Conditions of paeudotolithus area could play a fundamental role in the regulation of recruitment by biokogy influence on the survival of eggs, larvae and juvenile as well as on the fertility of the reproductive stock probably based on trophic relationships. According to Lauer et healthiness of fish from different habitats or to indicate the al.

Pseudotolithus senegalensis and P. The egg-laying time corresponds to the maximum value of the GSI. These changes are due to sex, maturity, season species caught by beach seine were juveniles. Maps showing Benin in Africa a of Benin b and sampling sites c.


African Journal of Marine Science, 28, Bilateria bilaterally symmetrical animals. Acknowledgement degree of ripeness of the ovary. Further, the mean Troadec [28]. Therefore, population structure, probability of capture and size at first capture were investigated using length-frequency data of specimen sampled from beach seine hauls over a period of 18 months.

Information gained from this study will not only eyes and large mouth with lower jaw projecting, while P.

To maintain a population in equilibrium it is of great importance to give each fish the chance of reproducing at least once in its lifetime to replenish the stock, and therefore the length at first capture, Lc should be bigger than the length at first sexual maturation, L m Narges et al.
