Linckia laevigata is gonochoristic. In other words, they have separate male and female individuals (Yamaguchi 1977). When sexually mature, L. laevigata release eggs and sperms into the water column, where fertilization takes place (Yamaguchi 1977).
The bluish sea star Linckia laevigata is purely marine and omnipresent on coral reefs throughout the tropical oceans of the universe, preponderantly in the Indo West Pacific Region and around the Northern portion of Australia ( Williams 2000 ) and is normally found in heavy figure all through the Philippine archipelago. It is characterized by house texture, presenting somewhat cannular.

Abstract Coral reef associated marine invertebrates, such as the blue sea star Linckia laevigata, have a life history with two phases: sedentary adults and planktonic larvae. On the one hand it is hypothesised that the long pelagic larval duration facilitates large distance dispersal.Learn More

Over time, the intensity and strength of the volcanic island causes it to gradually sink into the ocean. The cause of the drop of the volcano island is because of the sea floor spreading out or the extremely great mass of the island.Learn More
