Figure 4

Upper and lower hinges correspond to the first and third quartiles, bars correspond to medians and whiskers extend to the highest and lowest values within 1.5 IQR (inter-quartile range). Data beyond whiskers are outliers represented as dots. Significant differences between sites were found in weeks 2 and 3 (multiple comparisons from linear mixed effect models, step-wise adjusted; see Table 1 for more information and exact adjusted p-values). The dotted line denotes that spawning was expected between weeks 4 and 5. Oocytes (likely stage III) were retained beyond expected spawning in August at all sites.
