Male size composition affects male reproductive variance in Atlantic cod Gadus morhua L. spawning aggregations

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Estimates of Atlantic cod Gadus morhua reproductive success, determined using experimental spawning groups and genetic paternity assignment of offspring, showed that within-group variance in male size correlated positively with the degree of male mating skew, predicting a decrease in male reproductive skew with decreasing size variation among males under natural conditions.
