AbstractThe present thesis starts from the premise that the knowledge of reproductive strategies of species is a fundamental tool for the understanding of ecological system characteristics (Giangrande et al., 1994). The deep sea (>1000 m depth) is the largest ecosystem on Earth and, although a large effort has been made in its exploration, it is still one of the least known habitats in the planet (Ramirez-Llodra et al., 2010). Our understanding in diversity, distribution and ecology aspects of deep-sea fish populations has increased considerably, however, the reproductive aspects of most of the fishes inhabiting these unique environments is still poorly understood. This lack of information represents a great opportunity to explore and further investigate these important topics to better understand, following a comparative approach, the ecological processes that shape the life-history patterns of deep-water fishes in the Mediterranean Sea. But first, we must have a well knowledge of species specific life strategies. [...]
