Sex Change in Protogynous Fish Red-Belted Anthias Pseudanthias rubrizonatus (Serranidae) in Kagoshima Bay, Japan
The red-belted anthias Pseudanthias rubrizonatus inhabits Kagoshima Bay is a protogynous fish species exhibiting sex change and its sex is determined based on the body color and the observation of their gonad.
A preliminary study on the length-weight relationship of Sacura boulengeri (Heemstra, 1973) from Indian waters
The length-weight relationship of Sacura boulengeri was estimated to be W = 0.0777 × L2, and an analysis of the stomach contents revealed that sergestid shrimps and copepods were the major food items of the diet.
Evolutionary Transitions in the Sexual Patterns of Fishes: Insights from a Phylogenetic Analysis of the Seabasses (Teleostei: Serranidae)
Results from this study suggest that sexual patterns in fishes can evolve in several directions within single lineages and do not require functional intermediates.
Functional hermaphroditism in teleosts
The review confirms functional hermaphroditism in 27 teleost families in seven orders, predominantly among tropical, marine perciforms in which its diversity of expression is greatest, and explores its phylogenetic distribution, possible origin and range of expression.
Spawning, eggs and larvae of the hawkfish,Cirrhitichthys aureus, in an aquarium
Spawning of the hawkfish,Cirrhitichthys aureus, occurred repeatedly between a female and a male in the aquariums of the Marine Science Museum, Tokai University. The pair was collected from Suruga Bay


Ecology and behavior of Anthias squamipinnis (peters, 1855) (Anthiidae, Teleostei) in the coral habitat of eilat (Red Sea)
Anthias squamipinnis (Anthiidae, Teleostei), a sexually dimorphic coral fish, is found in large swarms along the western coast of the Gulf of Aqaba. Each swarm is permanently bound to a particular
Social Control of Sex Reversal in a Coral-Reef Fish
Males of Labroides dimidiatus control the process of sex reversal within social groups by actively dominating them and death of the male releases this suppression and the dominant female of the harem changes sex immediately.
Protogynous Sex Reversal in the Fish Anthias squamipinnis (Teleostei, Anthiidae) regulated by the Presence or Absence of a Male Fish
To establish whether environmental factors regulate this sex reversal, or if it is a continuous and non-predictable process, a series of experiments with Anthias performed in captivity during 1968 and 1969 found no change in morphology or behaviour to indicate sex change.
