Absolute Fecundity Fecundity Type:

Comments on Fecundity: Lengths do not correspond to minimum and maximum fecundities.
Relative Fecundity
Min: 221 Ref.: Vakily, J.M. and A. Cham, 2003
Mean: 295 Ref.: Vakily, J.M. and A. Cham, 2003

Fecundity/length relationship ( F = a * L ^b):
  Size: (cm) TL 
  n:
  a: 27.600 95% confidence limit:  
  b: 2.088 95% confidence limit:  
  r2: 0.923
Spawning Cycles: (1/y)   Ref:
Comments: According to the study, more mature males were present in August and September while the absence of mature females during this time precludes any conclusions on a possible second spawning peak. Fecundity-weight relationship: F = 993.1W ^(0.662), (r = 0.9679). Lengths do not correspond to minimum and maximum fecundities.
