Abstract:

Biology of the Macaronesian endemic rockling Gaidropsarus guttatus was studied in the Azores. The overall sex ratio from the samples was highly in favour of females (1 : 6·33). The growth parameters were L = 24·23, k = 1·219 and t0 = −0·059. Fish matured at 15 cm LT and the spawning season was strongly clustered in April.
