A probable spawning aggregation of the leather bass Dermatolepis dermatolepis (Boulenger) in the Revillagigedo Archipelago, México
Abstract:Detailed life-history observations of Dermatolepis dermatolepis are given, including the location, size and timing of a probable spawning aggregation. These observations emphasize the general rarity of the species and the importance of no-take reserves in the management of offshore islands.
