A fecundity study of the eastern Scotian Shelf haddock (Melanogrammus aeglefinus) stock during the 1997–1999 spawning seasons is reported. We developed a model that accounted for fecundity changes at the individual level and that could be used to estimate population egg production beyond the study period. Incorporating condition factors into the model (relative condition factor (Kn) and hepatosomatic index) accounted for a significant proportion of the residual variation. The model predicted… CONTINUE READING
