Blennies (Family Blenniidae
) collected or observed in California marine waters.
Using mariculture as a breeding site: reproduction of Hypleurochilus fissicornis (Actinopterygii: Blenniidae
As to the number of species per family, Blenniidae
, Carangidae, Haemulidae, Pomacentridae, and Scaridae showed the higher richness, which was also verified by Floeter et al.
These tissue characteristics were similar to those found in the accessory gonadal/gonoduct structures of some Blenniidae
(Lahnsteiner et al., 1993; Richtarski and Patzner, 2000).
When the larvae were evaluated, the family Engraulidae was the dominant family (88%) just like in the eggs, and was followed by Clupeidae (4%), Gobiidae (2%), Sparidae (2%) family and other families which were found less than 1% (Myctophidae, Syngnathidae, Merlucciidae, Cepolidae, Carangidae, Callionymidae, Blenniidae
, Mugilidae, Bothidae and Soleidae) (Fig.
One of the locations, Alcatraz, was charaeterized by the Blenniidae
, Labrisomidae and Tripterygiidae families, while the other location, Isla Larga, was represented by the gobies C.

Overall, coral reef fish species present a variety of complex spawning systems, but among them two major groups are generally observed: (1) demersal spawners, showing a synchrounous oocyte development and total spawning, represented mainly by species of the families Gobiidae, Blenniidae
and Pomacentridae; and (2) pelagic spawners, exhibiting asynchronous oocyte development and spawning in portions, represented by families such as Lutjanidae, Haemulidae, Carangidae, Mullidae, and Gerreidae (Rong-Quen, 2000; Petersen and Warner, 2002).
