Info on fish laying clutches on algae wanted

Postby Trond Amundsen » Fri Jun 08, 2007 8:29 am

I'm studying the two-spotted goby, a small fish inhabiting rocky shores of W Europe. This species frequently lays its egg clutch directly on live kelp - between leaves or in other natural "crevices" in the alga. Does anyone know of other fish species - gobies or other substrate brooders - that place their clutches on kelp or other algae? Having unsuccessfully searched literature databases for relevant info, any info (& if available, refs to sources) would be highly appreciated.
