Horizontal and vertical distribution of larval fish assemblages during austral winter (August 2003)and spring (November 2003) were studied along three longit... 

Figures and Tables from this paper


Eggs and larvae of the common sardine, Strangomera bentincki, were studied in the inner waters of the X and XI regions of Chile, in order to identify potenti...

Distribución del ictioplancton en la Patagonia austral de Chile: potenciales efectos del deshielo de Campos de Hielo Sur

In October-November 2009, an oceanographic survey was carried out between 50 and 53°S off southern Chile, near the Southern Ice Field. The stations near the glacier showed low temperatures (1-3oC)

Southward expansion of the Chilean salmon industry in the Patagonian Fjords: main environmental challenges

Chile is the second largest producer of farmed salmon in the world. After reaching a peak harvest of 631 000 tonnes in 2008, a severe sanitary and production crisis triggered a major legal and

Temporal fluctuations of nearshore ichthyoplankton off Valparaíso, central Chile, during the ENSO cycle 1997-2000

Los analisis multivariados demostraron that las asociaciones de larvas estuvieron separadas significativamente de acuerdo a las fases calida y fria del ENOS, pero the diversidad total of the comunidad ictioplanctonica no fue afectada.

Feeding habits of larval Maurolicus parvipinnis (Pisces: Sternoptychidae) in Patagonian fjords

A significant relation between feeding success and vertical stratification of the water column, with higher prey volume per gut found in larvae collected in areas with a Brunt-Vaissala frequency of 0.07–0.2 cycles s −1 .

Otolith elemental composition reveals separate spawning areas of anchoveta, Engraulis ringens, off central Chile and northern Patagonia

The anchoveta (Engraulis ringens) is widely distributed throughout the Humboldt Current (4°30′-44°S). In recent years, its eggs and larvae have also been found inside fjords and channels of northern



Capacidad de transporte de la constricción de Meninea para un flujo de dos capas y el efecto de la corriente de marea

In the spring of 1995 an array of two current meters was deployed over the sill in the Meninea contraction for an initial examination of currents. The exper...

Larval growth of the anchoveta Engraulis ringens during the winter spawning season off central Chile

Larval growth rates of the anchoveta Engraulis ringens were de- termined for two periods during the winter spawning season off Talcahuano, central Chile. Because winter is the season of minimum

Descriptions of larvae of Merluccius australis, Macruronus magellanicus, and observations on a larva of Micromesistius australis from southern Chile (Pisces: Gadiformes)

Larvae of two commercially important fish species, namely southern hake (Merluccius australis) and hoki (Macruronus magellanicus) are described for the first time from material collected in southern Chile, and taxonomic affinity between these species is demonstrated.

Environmental influences on winter spawning of the anchoveta Engraulis ringens off central Chile

The coupling between maximum egg and larval fish density and specific meteorological and oceanographic conditions, the temporal and spatial decoupling between potential gelatinous predators and larvals anchovies, and the overall benign larval feeding conditions close to the coast suggest that the timing of spawning and location of young anchovies nearshore may be part of a larger reproductive strategy of this species in the area.

Spawning of the chilean hake (Merluccius gayi) in the upwelling system off Talcahuano in relation to oceanographic features

Previous studies have shown that the upwelling area off Talcahuano, in central-south Chile, is an important spawning zone for the hake Merluccius gayi . We document the results of a study designed to

Eggs and larvae of Maurolicus muelleri (Gonostomatidae) and other fish eggs and larvae from two fjords in western Norway

Results showed that 35 species were present in both fjords and eggs of Brosme brosme, Microstomus kitt, Gaidropsarus sp.

Early Life Survival of the Anchoveta Engraulis ringens Off Central Chile during the 1995 and 1996 Winter Spawning Seasons

This study determined the mortality rates of egg and larval anchoveta in an area located close to the species' southern limit of distribution during its winter spawning season and found that mortality rates considering the egg and larvae stages together were much higher than those estimated using only the larval stage.

Reproductive tactics and larval development of bigeye flounder, Hippoglossina macrops, off central Chile

Through a series of ichthyoplankton surveys carried out off central Chile, we characterize the offshore spawning and coastal nursery ground of the bigeye flounder Hippoglossina macrops. Eggs were

Seasonal relative abundance of fish larvae inshore at Îles Kerguelen, Southern Ocean

Ichthyoplankton sampling was conducted seasonally with 36 surveys between spring 1989 and spring 1992 in four bays in the Kerguelen archipelago: Morbihan, Baleiniers, Choiseul and Audierne. Golfe des
