On the fecundity of the bogue, Boops boops (L., 1758), from the Portuguese coast

On the fecundity of the bogue, Boops boops (L., 1758), from the Portuguese coast The fecundity of the bogue from the Portuguese coast was assessed by the volumetric method using 75 ovaries in prespawning stage from fishes between 14 and 36 cm total length (TL). Estimates of total potential annual fecundity varied between 11550 and 357800 eggs per female. Relationships between fecundity and total length, total weight (TW) and age (A) were established, the former being a better‐suited prediction of fecundity according to the equation: F = 15632 (TL) ‐ 228717. Relative fecundity was determined. Maximum values corresponded to females between 21 and 26 cm total length. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Applied Ichthyology Wiley

Abstract

The fecundity of the bogue from the Portuguese coast was assessed by the volumetric method using 75 ovaries in prespawning stage from fishes between 14 and 36 cm total length (TL). Estimates of total potential annual fecundity varied between 11550 and 357800 eggs per female. Relationships between fecundity and total length, total weight (TW) and age (A) were established, the former being a better‐suited prediction of fecundity according to the equation: F = 15632 (TL) ‐ 228717. Relative fecundity was determined. Maximum values corresponded to females between 21 and 26 cm total length.
