Within a population, herring (C. harengus) spawning site selection is critical to larval retention and subsequent year class strength (Iles and Sinclair, 1982). There is some evidence of spawning ground location influencing growth in Atlantic salmon, as size and age at first spawning increase with the distance to spawning grounds and river harshness (Schaffer and Elson, 1975). 2. 2. Season of spawning Seasonal environmental changes characterise high latitude and temperate aquatic ecosystems, and within these ecosystems, most organisms reproduce seasonally (Bye, 1990).

By producing males early in the season there is an increased chance that some offspring will reproduce within 12 months which increases the parents’ reproductive fitness. 4. Salinity Salinity levels of aquatic systems vary from 0 to 36 parts per thousand (ppt) and some systems fluctuate seasonally due to rainfall or aseasonally due to oceanic upwellings, downwellings or seeps. Oceanic ecosystems have a relatively stable salinity around 35 ppt (except the Red and Baltic Seas), and most freshwater streams by definition have salinities of zero; landlocked lakes may have high salinities and inland seas, such as the Baltic Sea, may have distinct haloclines.

2001). , 2001). However, contrary to this prediction, while brown trout (Salmo trutta) egg mortality was higher for all eggs under reduced oxygen conditions, smaller eggs suffered higher levels of mortality than larger eggs under the same low oxygen conditions. , 2002). , 2003), and is dependent to some degree on how parents construct the egg mass and nest. Other pathways for a maternal effect to interact with oxygen availability include nest site choice with reference to oxygen availability, for example, gobies ( Jones and Reynolds, 1999) and smallmouth bass Micropterus dolomieu (Lukas and Orth, 1995; Takegaki, 2001), and nest-tending to compensate for low oxygen (Green and McCormick, 2005b; Takegaki and Nakazono, 1999).
