Jonathan P. Theory predicts that males should tailor the size of their ejaculates according to temporal changes in the risk of sperm competition. Specifically, males are predicted to allocate more sperm to each mating event with increasing risk i. We tested this hypothesis by using the eastern mosquitofish, a freshwater species of fish exhibiting a coercive mating system and internal fertilization. We manipulated the perception of sperm competition risk by adjusting the sex ratio under which males were maintained over 8 days. Males were housed either with three females and one male simulating high sperm competition risk or with four females low risk.

A method of computer assisted sperm analysis in fish is described. This method is used for assessing the main parameters of sperm motility by means of a microscope and video camera connected to a computer with easily available software. The method is illustrated with reference to the analysis of sperm activity in Zebrasoma scopas Acanthuridae , a representative of the ichthyofauna of coral reefs.

A method for the assessment of sperm quality in fish

By Roxanne Khamsi. Men may be intrigued to hear that researchers have pinpointed a gene that makes females suck up sperm through their mouths. The gene was found in the cichlid fish, where the males have evolved a way to lure females close so that they can squirt sperm into their mouths.
