Abstract: Belone stolzmanni is a multiple-spawning fish, spawning more
than once during a reproductive season. The smallest reproductively active
female measured 380mm standard length (SL); the smallest spermiogenic male
measured 353mm SL. Only one gonad develops in each sex.
Peru has a highly diverse (Chirichigno 1980) but little studied fish fauna. In an
effort to add to our knowledge of the reproductive biology of Peruvian fishes,
samples of the little-known belonid fish Belone stolzmanni were obtained. The
range of this fish extends from the Gulf of California (Mexico) to the Islas
Chincha (Peru) and the Galapagos Islands (Chirichigno 1980). Nothing is known
of its reproductive biology . The purpose of this note is to provide a histological
analysis of gonad samples collected during summer.
