Fish traders and NGOs have put the idea forward that in order to not disturb the spawning process and hence improve the reproductive success of a fish population one should stop fishing during the spawning period. This idea has resulted in the project “Vis & Seizoen”. Within this project a theoretical framework is being developed to examine the possible effect of fishing during the spawning season. This is the first report within the project. It presents a summary of the life history characteristics that are related to the reproduction of nine important commercial fish species.
