Filetype[PDF-613.88 KB]

  • Description:
    This report presents observations pertaining to the identification of marine fish eggs collected in continental shelf and slope waters of the northeast United States, which extends from south of Cape Hatteras to western Nova Scotia. The information included here encompasses the time period from 1977 to 1994. Most of the fish eggs were collected during the 11-year (1977- 1987) MARMAP (Marine Resource Monitoring Assessment and Prediction) program, and additional egg data were obtained from post-MARMAP survey cruises from 1988 to 1994. The intention of this report was to compile the information used for fish egg identification by the Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC) with three specific objectives: 1) to provide descriptive notes for various fish taxa on their egg development from fertilization to hatching, 2) to document spawning times for the taxa collected for the four regions of the Northeast U.S. continental shelf, and 3) to present data on seasonal and regional variation in egg shell and oil globule diameters for various taxa"--Preface.
