Coral Reef Fact:


The Cubera Snapper (Lutjanus cyanopterus) is “oviparous, releasing pelagic eggs into offshore waters at spawning aggregation sites.” At these sites hundreds to thousands of fish meet to spawn. “The eggs hatch within a day of fertilization, producing pelagic larvae that are dispersed by the currents.”  “Whale sharks are known to feed on freshly released Cubera snapper spawn in waters off Belize.”
