  • Distribution of Sardinops eggs from seven surveys off southern Western Australia (WA) were assessed to determine if there were separate concentrations of spawning adults. Ten year series (1989–1998) of both age compositions and gonadosomatic indices (GSIs), obtained from routine sampling of commercial catches, were also analysed to aid assessment of stock structure of Sardinops from three regions on the southern WA coast. The patterns in the distribution of Sardinops eggs provided evidence for… CONTINUE READING
