Complex Zonation in Whole Otoliths of Juvenile Orange roughy, Hoplostethus atlanticus
Abstract:Opaque and hyaline zones in otoliths (sagittae) of 67 specimens of Hoplostethus atlanticus (Teleostei: Trachichthyidae) were measured as intensity (width of the zone) and distance along the growth axis of the otolith. Comparison of the patterns in opaque and hyaline zone intensity distribution with length modes in the sample and with ages estimated from daily microincrements showed no relationship.
