The study is concluded that the minimum size of female  Lutjanus argentimaculatus at maturity is 48 cm (3 age), and that the spawning may occur at fish size of 48 - 76 cm. The fecundity of female is variable in fish size or age groups: the number of ova at the length of 4 age is 895 × 103, 5 age is 995 × 103 and 6 age is 4,1 × 106 ova.
