A SCUBA-diving investigation of Baltic herring Clupea harengus membras L spawning grounds in the Asko-Landsort area, northern Baltic proper



A SCUBA-diving investigation of Baltic herring Clupea harengus membras L spawning grounds in the Asko-Landsort area, northern Baltic proper



Journal of Fish Biology 21.4: 433-442



In a spawning area survey in the Askoe area, northern Baltic proper, undertaken in the beginning of summer 1978, 100 randomly established and sampled transects were studied by diving. Herring spawn was found at 45 of the transects. The eggs were usually found on Pilayella littoralis , a filamentous brown algae, at the more exposed transects. Eggs were only found down to a depth of 11 m. In a neighbouring oil spill area spawn were found at only four out of 20 transects. Of eggs taken to the laboratory for hatching, 54% of those from the unaffected area hatched but only 25% of those from the oil spill area.
