Arafa, Soumaya; Chouaibi, Moncef; Sadok, Saloua; El Abed, Amor;

Seasonal variation in the gonad weight and biochemical composition of the sea urchin Paracentrotus lividus from the Golf of Tunis (Tunisia) were studied between September 2003 and August 2004. The highest gonad indices occurred in March (16.71%). The spawning period occ... View more
