Note(s): Nassau groupers Epinephelus striatus held in a 37-m3 concrete raceway were conditioned to spawn 3 mo later than in their home waters. After being held in the raceway for 15 mo, four female and two male groupers spawned voluntarily over a 4-d period in March 1994, producing 10.3 million eggs. By December 1994, two females had been removed. During March 1995, one of the remaining two females spawned on three consecutive days (60 cm TL, 1,172,000 eggs) and the other only on the third day (47 cm TL, 488,000 eggs). In April 1995, three females (including one held in isolation for 6 mo, then replaced 6 d before the first spawn) produced more than 9.8 million eggs in 4 d.
