  • Video - Spawning Aggregations - Natural Numbers EP 05 - English Language - Agregaciones de Desove - Spanish Language - Spawning aggregations are massive gatherings of fish for breeding, a behavior shared by many species across the globe in many different habitats. Spawning aggregations support some of the most productive fisheries: from multibillion-dollar industries to subsistence cultures, yet we are only beginning to understand their value for marine ecosystems and food security, and their vulnerability. In the upper Gulf of California, in Mexico, a large marine fish known as Gulf Corvina offers an insight into the importance of this behavior. Thanks to Brad Erisman, Assistant Professor of Fisheries Ecology, University of Texas at Austin Marine Science Institute.
