Abstract

 Mytilus galloprovincialis; Reproduction Activity and Mantle Structure in a Zone Located in the Northwest of the Atlantic Ocean (Imessouane, Morocco)

The aim of this paper is to contribute as part of the new national strategy “Halieutis” to better understand the mytiliculture potential by studying their reproductive system in the natural environment. We investigated the gametogenesis of a natural population of Mytilus galloprovincialis in a southern zone of Morocco (Imessouane). We found that the population is characterized by an asynchronous gametogenesis.

Keywords: Mytilus galloprovincialis; Reproduction; Condition index; Gonadic index; ADG cells; Histology
