AbstractThe reproductive strategies and fecundity of 13 species of the NW Mediterranean deep-sea fish community (750-2250 m depth) were analyzed. The results were compared with previous published data of shallower-living NW Mediterranean species . The results showed that all species analyzed present group-synchronous ovarian organization. All the species present the general pattern of large eggs and low Total Fecundity (TF) in comparison with shallower distributed fish species. TF is positively correlated with fish length. However, no significant relationship between length and depth was found, suggesting that the environmental factors associated with depth play an important role in determining fecundity
