Abstract The fertilization success of sneaking behavior in a paternal care fish, Hexagrammos otakii, was estimated using microsatellites as genetic markers. Sneaking behavior was observed using a video camera placed near the nest of a breeding territorial male. Two egg masses fertilized by different patterns of sperm emission by the territorial male and sneaker males were examined for paternity discrimination. When a sneaker emitted a large amount of sperm after sperm emission by the… CONTINUE READING
