For deeper regions of the continental shelf environmental cues entraining reproduction in echinoderms are often absent. In habitats with low or variable food availability intermittent reproduction is predicted as resources are too low for a high reproductive effort and too erratic for synchrony.

For the Sub Antarctic sea cucumber Pseudostichopus mollis a pattern of reproduction where fluctuations in seasonal organic input into an accumulated benthic food source initiates and synchronises gametogenesis for future spawning is proposed.
