This study evaluated the effects of season and spatial distribution on the fatty acid composition of Patella depressa gonads and Patella spp. soft body tissue. The results show that the quantitatively most important fatty acids were the saturated fatty acids (SFA) 16:0, 14:0 and 18:0; the monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) 18:1(n-7), 18:1(n-9), 16:1(n-7)(More)
Mortality during the early stages is a major cause of the natural variations in the size and recruitment strength of marine fish populations. In this study, the relation between the size-at-hatch and early survival was assessed using laboratory experiments and on field-caught larvae of the European sardine (Sardina pilchardus). Larval size-at-hatch was not(More)
