Fig. 32. Map showing the sampling stations of the KT-00-16 survey for leptocephali in the East China Sea region from 27 November to 7 December 2000 (left panel). Locations where leptocephali of both Saurenchelys and Dysomma were collected are shown by solid circles, and circles filled in the left half indicate that only the former species was collected, and circles filled in the right half indicate only the latter species was collected (open circles show stations with neither species). Right panels show the relationship between age and total length based on the otolith increments of the leptocephali of Saurenchelys stylura and Dysomma sp. (probably D. anguillare).
