  • The population structure and reproductive activity of the brackish water snail Iravadia (Fairbankia) sakaguchii, which lives under partially buried stones on intertidal mudflats, were investigated monthly in the Waka River Estuary, Wakayama, central Japan. Observations of the reproductive organs indicated the main reproductive season as being from June to July. Maturation size was estimated to be approximately 4.0 mm in shell length (SL) in females and 3.9 mm SL in males, there being no… CONTINUE READING
