It may be possible to increase annual recruitment to the northern Atlantic cod, Gadus morhua, stock through enhancement of the spawning biomass. For marine fish species whose fecundities are a function of body size, such as cod, it may be possible to increase the growth of wild fish in sea cages to artificially advance their fecundity. One objective was to determine if cod from Trinity Bay, Newfoundland could have significant gains in fecundity after being fed in captivity, compared to… CONTINUE READING
