Within the DIVERSIFY project for the diversification of species in European aquaculture, wreckfish is a special case because of its late sexual maturation, which does not occur until 7-8 years of age (Peleteiro and Brunzón, 2014), besides existing very few data on its reproductive biology because it is a demersal species whose adult specimens tend to live at the range of 100-1000 meters of deep. This work sets out the progress made in the study of the reproductive cycle of this species in stocks established in Galicia (Spain).
