  • Description:
    This study discusses the early life history of fish in coastal waters of the northeast Pacific Ocean. It is based on plankton and hydrographic data collected off Washingrton, Oregon, and northern California during the 1980s. Ten research cruises were conducted during this period with cooperative ventures by the U.S. Northwest and Alaska Fisheries Center (NWAFC), now the AIaska Fisheries Science Center, in Seattle, and the Soviet Pacific Research Institute (TINRO) in Vladivostok. The objectives of this study were (1) to docunent patterns in occurrence, distribution and abundance of ichthyoplankton species in the neuston and water column of the sanpling area, (2) to identify and describe the occurrence and distribution of nultispecies assemblages of ichthyoplankton in this region, and (3) to relate spatial and temporal patterns in the ichthyoplankton to the oceanogrraphy of the sampling area. These were the first large-scale ichthyoplankton surveys to be conducted in this region.
