Abstract: Gonad development and synchrony among Porites compressa, P.
Zobata, and P. evermanni colonies, collected in Kane'ohe Bay during the summer
of 1997, were histologically examined and compared. All three species are
gonochoric broadcast spawners, releasing gametes predominantly around the
time of full moon during the breeding season. Histological sections of fertile
polyps confirmed the maturity of gonads and presence of zooxanthellae surrounding
the oocytes and moving into the ooplasm of the mature eggs before
spawning.
