The relation between spawning season and the recruitment of young of the year bluefish pomatomus saltatrix to new york usa



Fishery Bulletin (Washington D C) 86(2): 237-250



ISSN/ISBN: 0090-0656

The association between oceanic spawning season and the recruitment of young-of-the-year (YOY) bluefish, Pomatomus saltatrix, to the inshore waters of New York was studied by estimating the spawn dates of recruited fish collected in the shore zone from the number of growth increments in thier otoliths. Field collections on the south shore of Long Island showed that recruitment of 3-6 cm fork length fish occurred as a distinct pulse during the last week of May in 1985 and the second week of June in 1986. Lenght-frequency distributions were generally unimodal and most fish collected later could be attributed to this one recruitment episode. The frequency of otolith ring deposition in YOY bluefish was determined by marking the otoliths of field-caged fish with an injection of tetracycline, and then periodically subsampling these over the ensuing 61-day period. Regression analysis indicated a 1:1 relation between the number of days since marking and the number of rings beyond the mark. Back-calculation to the time of first ring deposition revealed that field-collected YOY bluefish from Long Island were spawned primarily in the March-April spawning season reported to occur south of Cape Hatteras [North Carolina]. Relatively few fish were collected from the summer spawning season that reportedly occurs in the Middle Atlantic Bight. Almost all of these summer-spawned fish were collected from the Hudson River.
