Over the past six years, three international workshops on fish gametes have demonstrated the rapid development of opportunities and methodologies with promising uses in basic reproductive biology, genetic research, biotechnology and aquaculture practice. These can have far-reaching consequences on conservation of endangered species, assessment of anthropogenic and climatic impacts on aquatic species and application in aquaculture, as well as in fisheries management. It is recognized that there are many details in the practical application of these new methods used by most scientists and laboratories, which can cause highly variable if not contradictory results, even using the same species. There is an urgent need to establish a universal scale to assess both the precise state of sexual maturation (for secure broodstock use) and related life history traits (gamete quality assessment, incubation of eggs) in teleost fish and other commercially important invertebrates used in either bioassays or aquaculture. The aim of AQUAGAMETE is to reach a consensus on protocols and guidelines (using internationally defined terminology, units of measurement and format of reporting) that permit the use of results in relational databanks for sound and common application in aquaculture research and commerce.
