This paper reports protogynous hermaphroditism in the dageraad Chrysoblephus cristiceps. Mass-length relationships indicate growth changes in male and female fish. Seasonal maturity in dageraad, and hermaphroditism in South African sparid fish are discussed. A regulatory measure for the conservation of dageraad is proposed.
