Life History Strategies of Non-Indigenous Por’s Goatfish (Upeneus pori) and Confamilial Red Mullet (Mullus barbatus) in The Northeastern Mediterranean

2013-11-01
In this study, allocation of energy and time for growth and reproduction of M. barbatus and U. pori were investigated to understand life history strategies adapted by a native and non-indigenous confamilial species based on multidisciplinary survey data collected in three successive years in the NE Mediterranean. The results indicated that the species seem to fulfill their biological activities within a short period of time when the highest productivity is reached in the area. The native fish exhibits fast growth, early maturation and short reproduction season while its counterpart spawns during two different time period (dual spawning) on the bathymetric slot (upper thermocline) that M. barbatus abandons during summer.
