Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

It is found on rocks in shallow water and on mud in deeper waters, depths of 0 to 690 m (Ref. 87801). Members of the class Holothuroidea are gonochoric and have only one gonad. Spawning and fertilization are both external and some exhibit brooding. Life cycle: Embryos develop into planktotrophic larvae (auricularia) then into doliolaria (barrel-shaped stage) which later metamorphose into juvenile sea cucumbers (Ref. 833).
