Abstract

Male reproductive cycle phases of Squalius platyceps from Skadar Lake, Montenegro are analysed in an annual cycle. Maturity phases of the reproductive cycle are estimated on the base of macroscopic and histological descriptions of male gonads. Temporal aspect of the maturity phases of male reproductive cycle are presented respectively. Research data for Squalius platyceps, as a newly recognized species, are discussed in the relation to the reproductive cycle of other cyprinid species from Skadar Lake.
