Samples were taken every 3 h during a 24 h trawl survey conducted in the Bornholm Basin in April 2007. Gonad histology revealed spawning of sprat throughout the day which hampered the exact aging of POFs by the postovulatory follicle method. However, it was possible to define four stages of POFs, according to their… CONTINUE READING
