Resumo:  The present work studied the reproduction of the flatfish Etropus crossotus in the Paranaguá Estuarine Complex, Paraná State, subtropical region of Brazil. Monthly collections of biological material occurred from October 2008 to October 2009, at seven sampling sites, through ten-minute otter trawl surveys in the shallow infralittoral areas of the estuary. Temperature, water salinity, photoperiod, and rainfall data were also recorded. Ovarian histology was used to: 1 - describe ovarian development microscopically, 2 - make the quantitative analyses of both sexes more precise. The maturation curve, the frequency of gonadal maturation states and the condition factor verified that the reproductive period occurred from October to January. The frequency of young and adult individuals established that the recruitment period occurred in January and February. There were no significant differences in the sex ratio during the study period. The studied species completes its entire life cycle in an estuary and its reproduction is well-synchronized with the temporal variations implicit in subtropical regions.
