Abstract

In marine invertebrates, light forms a significant external signal (' Zeitgeber', Aschoff, 1960) to control various reproductive activities (Segal, 1970). The initiation and synchronization of spawning; gonad maturation and sex determination are light-dependent reproductive activities and appear to be mediated through photo-neuroendocrine pathways
