How often do sardines breed?



  1. 0 Votes

    Once she has spawned with a male, a female sardine carries between 5 and 20 eggs for up to 4 weeks. Once the eggs have incubated, the female spits out the fry (young sardines) into crevices and around rocks in her habitat. At this point, the female is again ready to spawn.

    It is possible to remove the fry from the female after 2 weeks and raise them artificially, which can result in a higher yield of fry than if the eggs were allowed to develop naturally.
