Definition of Term

spent fish
(English) Male or female fish after spawning, where the gonads have released their sperm or eggs; in many species the fat content and general condition of the fish is poor and they may die or take some time to regain commercial quality (e.g., salmon, trout). Most fish caught on spawning migrations are caught before they are spent. (See also: spawning, gonad, gamete)
peixe em pós-postura
(Portuguese) Macho ou fêmea de peixe após postura, em que as gónadas libertaram os espermatozóides ou os óvulos; em muitas espécies a sua condição neste período é má, podem morrer ou demorar algum tempo a recuperar valor comercial (p. ex. salmão, truta). (See also: spawning, gonad, gamete)
