Novel aims of the present proposal are:

  1. Determine the effect of wild spawning success on F1 sperm production.
  2. Determine the effect of removing dominant spawning pairs on the spawning of both the dominant pairs and subordinate fish.
  3. To study sperm production in reproductively dominate and subordinate breeders.
  4. To explore the relation between spatial and reproductive dominance with the aim to predict reproductive dominance from spatial dominance.
  5. To compare between wild and cultured fish the olfactory rosette and electro-olfactogram response to potential pheromones.
