In the present study, we examined the effect of high water temperature on brain-pituitary-gonad (B-P-G) axis of a perciform fish red seabream, Pagrus (Chrysophrys) major during its spawning season (April-May). High water temperature negatively affected all levels in B-P-G axis and turned out to be the termination factor of the spawning season of this species.
