Abstract

A morphometric comparison was made between Sparus aurata (n = 88), Pagrus pagrus (n = 38) and their hybrid 5. aurata (female) x P. pagrus (male) (n = 81) using 15 morphometric characteristics. The morphometric characteristics of the hybrids were generally intermediate to those of the parental species. However, characteristics related to the body shape (6) were more similar to S. aurata and those characters related to the head shape (9) were more similar to P. pagrus.
