The largest spawning activity in Kuwait waters occurs in March and April south east of Shuaibah port. Active spawning, however, is restricted to a rather short period between the end of March and beginning of April when the bottom water temperature is 18-19.5 degree C. Beside this largest spawning activity, there are small-scale spawning activities scattered throughout the year in other areas of Kuwaiti waters.
