Guidelines for the identification of marine fish eggs

Bensam, P (1989) Guidelines for the identification of marine fish eggs. In: Summer institute in recent advances on the study of marine fish eggs and larvae, 14 June - 3 July 1989, Kochi.



Occurrence of early developmental stages in the plankton and of spawners, spent, mature and/or recovering stages in fish catches can be used to identify the former as belonging to the latter only in a circumstantial manner, Delsman (1922-1938) has made use of such a method for assigning the early developmental stages; but, in addition to this he has also assigned cogent reasons of taxonomic nature in arriving/at his conclusion. -Thus, this circums tantial evidence of coincident occurrence of the eggs in the plankton and the spawning adults in the fishery can be only of limited value.
