It is well documented and accepted that the reproductive potential of a population is not only influenced by the abundance of spawners but also by their age, size, and condition.
Most studies of maternal effects on the reproductive potential have focused on factors such as egg production and quality, and less attention has been paid to the maternal influence on the temporal variation of the reproductive cycle. The present study introduces and describes some possible sources of variation in the reproductive cycle of the pouting Trisopterus luscus in Galician coastal waters (northwestern Iberian Peninsula).
The reproductive cycle of this species was adequately examined and defined, and seasonal variations in maternal characteristics, such as size and energy status (available energy reserves), were also studied.
The reproductive cycle seems to be perfectly synchronized with c...
