Özet

Spawning time, total fecundity, fertilization, and hatching rates of turbot (Psetta maxima) were investigated in 10 wild female broodstock (mean wt: 3809.7 +/- 1238.4 g). Spawning lasted 37 days, from April 17 to May 23. Mean total fecundity was 2329 +/- 1260 x 10(3) eggs per female. Fertilization and hatching rates were 30.6 +/- 25.4% and 17.9 +/- 16.1%, respectively. A significant positive correlation was observed between body weight and total fecundity (r = 0.637, P < 0.05). The timing and frequency of hand stripping, fecundity, fertilization, and hatching rates in turbot are presented.
