In the world's temperate regions, the reproduction of fish generally depends
on the season: in other words, it is determined by the temperature. There is only
one high season, during which a species usually reproduces only once. In a tropical
setting, where variations in temperature are less important, other factors influence
on reproduction, especially rain. Fish can lay eggs several times a year, at intervals
of sometimes less than a month.
