Part II. Zooplankton-herring Correlations in the English Fisheries

  • C. E. Lucas (a1)

Extract

The English fisheries which were investigated with the Plankton Indicator in 1931,1932, and 1933 were divided into three areas, i.e., those off Shields, the Humber mouth and the East Anglian coast (this last fishery was also sampled in 1930). All the samples in the Shields area lie between 56° 00 N. Lat. and 54° 20 N. Lat., whilst the majority (80%) lie in the area between 54° 45 N. Lat., and 55° 30 N. Lat. and a line parallel to and some 40 miles from the coast. This is an area of some 1600 square miles. In the Southern Bight Lat. 53° 00 N. was taken as a division between the Humber and the East Anglian areas. The distribution of all the samples is shown in Figs. 1 to 4. With the exception of the samples obtained by the Ministry of Fisheries research ship Onaway in June, 1931, and four samples obtained by H.M.S. Chenoell in September, 1933, all those in the Shields area have been collected by individual drifters engaged in the fishery. The Humber and East Anglian samples were obtained from both drifters and gunboats of the Fishery Protection and Mine Sweeping Flotilla alongside drifters fishing. The manner of collecting these samples has been described in Part I (p. 153).
