|Spawning behavior and paternal egg care in a circular
structure constructed by pufferfish, Torquigener
by Hisoshi Kawase, Yoji Okata, Kimiaki Ito, and Akihiko Ida
Based on underwater observations, Kawase and coauthors report on spawning and parental egg care of the pufferfish Torquigener albomaculosus. Their study documents how unique and intricate the reproductive behavior of this species can be, and how detailed and beautiful are the nests that the males build on sandy seabeds to attract females and care for the fertilized eggs until hatching.
