The early life history of a flounder limanda yokohamae



The early life history of a flounder limanda yokohamae



Nippon Suisan Gakkaishi 47(11): 1411-1420



The early life history of a flounder L. yokohamae (Guenther) was studied in the western Wakasa Bay, the Sea of Japan. General morphology and characteristics of the larvae and juveniles ranging from 3.05-9.90 mm body length, were described. Judging from records of occurrence of early larvae, actual spawning may occur in the western Wakasa Bay during the short period from late Jan. to early Feb. Prelarvae were caught mainly off the mouth of Maizuru Bay; early postlarvae were caught around the mouth of the Bay; and late postlarvae were caught mainly in the central part of the Bay. Early juveniles were captured in the beach of the Bay, and this area may be their nursery ground. Analyses of the gut contents showed that the food items were phytoplankton, veliger larvae and copepod nauplii in prelarvae; veliger larvae, copepod nauplii and copepods in postlarvae; and copepods, nematodes and polychaetes in early juveniles.
