CO2 EFFECTS ON SPAWNING RATES OF A MEDITERRANEAN NESTING WRASSE

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther

Abstract

Some aspects of the reproductive behaviour of the ocellated wrasse Symphodus ocellatus (Forsskål 1775) were investigated in wild conditions along a pCO2 gradient. Our results show no differences in the number of females, sneakers and satellite males involved in the spawning phase undertwo pCO2 conditions. However, the spawning rate of nesting males was negatively affected in high pCO2,whilst exerted a normal reproductive pattern in ambient pCO2.
