The proportion of starving larvae of northern anchovy, Engraulis mordax, was estimated for the Southern California Bight in March 1977 from histological examination of larvae for 64 1 m net tow samples. The number oflarvae in the tows varied from 0 to about 400. Approximately 6 per tow were sectioned and examinedwith the light microscope. Twenty-six specimens were identified as emaciated from anomalies ofthe trunk musculature anddigestive tract. Some ofthe emaciated larvae occurred as isolated… Expand
