Growth of larval and early juvenile Japanese anchovy, Engraulis japonicus, in the Kuroshio‐Oyashio transition region
Larvae, juveniles, and adults of Japanese anchovy, Engraulis japonicus, were distributed throughout the Kuroshio-Oyashio transition region off northern Japan as far offshore as 170°E in 1996 andExpand

Larval parameters determining preschooling juvenile production of Pacific saury (Cololabis saira) in the northwestern Pacific
Production of larvae in the hatching size-class of Pacific saury (Cololabis saira) was highest in autumn 1990-1994, implying that spawning activity was highest in this season. Growth and mortalityExpand
