Abstract
    The reproductive biology of king mackerel, Scomberomorus cavalla, was studied from specimens collected off Texas, Louisiana, and northwest Florida in the Gulf of Mexico and off North and South Carolina in the Atlantic Ocean. Gonads were examined from 1,163 females and 595 males obtained in 1977-78. Spawning was prolonged. Most king mackerel were reproductively active from May through September. A few fish were in spawning condition as early as April and as late as October. All females were mature at 850-899 mm fork length (FL). Estimates of fecundity ranged from about 69,000 to 12,207,000 eggs for fish from 446 to 1,489 mm FL, 618 to 25,610 g total weight (TW), and 1 to 13 years of age. Fecundity (F) was usually significantly correlated with FL, TW, and age in each area but TW was the best predictor of fecundity in all areas combined (F = 1.854 x 101 (TW)1361) with r2 = 0.856.
