If mermaids were real, would they more likely reproduce like fish or sea mammals (such as dolphins or whales)?

Mermaids have breasts, which means they have mammary glands. Therefore, they are mammals.

Is it? Mermaids' tail are horizontal, while fish fins are vertical. Sea mammals have horizontal fins, so in my opinion, it's more likely they have are sea mammal bottom.

Assuming that mermaids breed like fish (as they do in Futurama), how much do you think mermaid roe would go for on the black market?

Mermaid tails usually look scaly and green with the actual flipper part being iridescent and thin. I don't know of any marine mammals with tails like that. Just because humans are mammals doesn't mean a mermaid must be totally mammallian. In the folklore they are most definitely fish from the waist down, so the reproductive system would most likely operate like a fish. However it is true that some fish, such as guppies and cichlids are livebearers like humans.

They would reproduce like seahorses.

I believe mermaids are pre-historical humans when the earth was covered in more water that when the sea began to rise, humans went into the water more and over time their bodies changed to be able to live in water. Since they are technically humans that they reproduce in the mammal way.
