In this study the fecundity of the bogue (Boops boops) from the northern Sicilian coast (Central Mediterranean) was assessed by volumetric method. During the spawning season 46 fully mature females B. boops were sampled in the Harbour of Milazzo (South Tyrrhenian Sea). The relationships between absolute fecundity, fish weight and length were evaluated.
