Of two batches of eggs appeared in the plankton, the first batch was from January-April (sal. 30.76-34.77 ppt; temp. 27.43-31.18 degrees C) and second from July-October (35.37-19.81 ppt; temp. 28.65-29.63 degrees C). Subsequently larvae were collected from January-December (sal. 35.78-2.25 ppt; temp. 28.38-26.68 degrees C). Larval growth and the morphometric measurements have been described
