Fresh mature translucent oocytes from four marine teleosts, Liza richardsonii, Liza dumerllil, Monodactylus falciformis and Pomadasys olivaceum are descriptionbed. The characteristic features of the mullet oocytes, their diameter and number and size of oil droplets, are compared with those observed in artificially spawned fish. Such descriptionptions are not only of use in aquaculture, they are also of diagnostic value in zooplankton studies.
