This paper examines the hypotheses (1) that Sardinops sagax and Engraulis australis are spatially segregated and do not interact directly, and (2) that recent mass mortalities of S. sagax have facilitated an expansion in the distribution and abundance of E. australis. In South Australian waters, S. sagax and E. australis both spawn during summer and autumn. Eggs and larvae of both species occur over the continental shelf, and are abundant in areas where upwelling occurs (e.g. off the Cof- fin… CONTINUE READING
