In- direct investment is genetic inheritance, although the quality of this investment (e.g., as it effects growth rate) often varies from one parent to the next (Savalli & Fox, ).

Parental investment evolved independently in different lineages. However, the evolution of investment within lineages is debated, and patterns of parental investment are likely specific to species and life-history strategies (Klug et al. ). Parental investment may evolve when individuals have a reduced capacity to reproduce in future.

For 30 years, the most widely accepted hypothesis for the evolution of parental care in fishes has been a step- ping-stone model in which care evolved from an ancestral state of no care to biparental care via two intermediate stages of female-only and male-only care (Figure 2(a)). Evolution of Fish Ostracoderms: The first fishes, and indeed the first vertebrates, were the ostracoderms, jawless fishes found mainly in fresh water. They were covered with a bony armor or scales and were often less than 30 cm (1 ft) g: parental investment. Parental care is a behavioural and evolutionary strategy adopted by some animals, involving a parental investment being made to the evolutionary fitness of offspring. Patterns of parental care are widespread and highly diverse across the animal kingdom. There is great variation in different animal groups in terms of how parents care for offspring, and the amount of resources invested by parents.
