In contrast to application of egg production methods to short-lived species, our results may be most informative for estimates of reproductive potential used in agestructured assessments of relatively long-lived species that have been shown or must be assumed to be indeterminate spawners.
To investigate whether the larger spawners, which hypothetically have longer migrations along growth, differ in the number of PNZ increments from the smaller ones, only mature specimens were compared.
Opening on 1 September instead of 1 October maximized the benefit from increasing the mean size at capture (Gulland, 1989) but eliminated most of the potential for protecting the autumn spawners.
We took an empirical approach to modeling multiple spawner types by fitting interactions between latitude and temperature, and latitude and day of year, to fit a mixture of geographically offset but overlapping distributions.
ABSTRACT Current low densities of the northern abalone Haliotis kamtschatkana may be affecting the fertilization success of this endangered broadcast spawner, thus preventing its populations from recovering to historical levels.

Because broadcast spawners are susceptible to mate limitation (which is the dominant cause of Allee effects in aquatic invertebrates), the reproductive asynchrony we found in Spondylus populations in Ecuador further increases the significance of potential depensatory mechanisms and of nearest neighbor distance.
