Abstract

Ovary maturation and spawning in the chokka squid Loligo vulgaris reynaudii were investigated by collecting squid from across their distributional range on the southeastern coast of South Africa between 1992 and 1993. Based on histological examination of the ovarian tissue and the separation of multiple modes in oocyte size-frequency distribution, ovary development was characterised by eight distinct stages. Our study confirms serial spawning in L. v. reynaudii.
