Reproductive Activity of Yellowfin Tuna Off Southeastern Australia

Abstract:

Gonad weights and gonad indices from yellowfin tuna Thunnus albacares taken between 30ºC and 36º36’S off the southeastern coast of Australia were compared with those from the eastern central and southwestern Pacific Ocean. The low gonad weights and gonad indices showed no evidence of spawning during February-October for the sampling period March 1989-April 1988.
