Abstract

The ovarian structure and batch fecundity of anglerfish Lophiomus setigerus were examined from specimens collected in the East China Sea during March 1991 to September 1995. The right and left ovarian lobes were connected at their posterior ends. Stalk-like ovigerous lamellae protruded from the ovarian wall. During the spawning season, gelatinous material was secreted from the epithelia of both the ovigerous lamellae and ovarian wall, and these epithelia showed morphological changes accompanying the ovarian maturation cycle. Tertiary yolk, migratory nucleus, and mature stage oocytes occurred in the ovaries between May and November, when females with postovulatory follicles and developing vitellogenic oocytes were collected also. These results suggested an extended spawning season during which females undergo repeated spawnings. When the most advanced oocytes attained the secondary yolk stage, they formed a batch that separated from the adjacent group of smaller oocytes. Batch fecundity (F) in 20 females with secondary yolk stage ovaries was related to total length (LT, mm) as F= 556.2 L(T)1.157 (300 ≤L(T) ≤396).
