This paper described the life-history—with emphasis on the reproductive behavior—of the leather bass Dermatolepis dermatolepis (Boulenger) in the Revillagigedo Archipelago, Mexico, from underwater observations and previous literature. Spawning location, size, and timing was estimated to be before the new moon around seamounts and around 30-50 individuals, which highlighted the importance of managing no-take reserves. Cited 6 times, the paper reveal the complexities that need to be taken into account when planning no-take reserves.
