2 Additional Answers Answer for: how do starfish reproduce
Most species of starfish reproduce through external fertilization. Female starfish release eggs into the water and male starfish release a cloud of sperm to fertilize them.
Starfish reproduce by female starfish releasing their eggs and then male starfish populate the area with their sperm. Once the egg is fertilized the larvae of a starfish floats to the water surface for a few weeks and then drop to the ocean bottom and begin to take a starfish form. Many think this is also not just reproduction of the starfish, but a form of regeneration as well.
