Abstract

Nereis succinea and Platynereis dumerilii (Annelida, Polychaeta) are broadcast spawners and reproduce semelparously. The final events in reproduction, swarming and spawning are co-ordinated by sex pheromones. A water-soluble fraction of crude oil, the volatile fraction (C9—C16) of EKO FISK crude oil was found to induce release of gametes in male nereids at levels
