Fig. 43. Catch rates of recently spawned leptocephali of 2 taxa that were abundant along the outer edge of the continental shelf in the East China Sea adjacent to the Kuroshio Current in late November and early December of 2000 during the KT-00-16 sampling survey (see Fig. 32 for a map of stations). The Gnathophis leptocephali were likely mostly Gnathophis nystromi nystromi, and the other species was likely Dysomma anguillare. The catches of larger sized leptocephali are not shown, but see Miller et al. (2002a) for their total size range. Catch rates are calculated based on the number of leptocephali (inds.) collected per amount of water filtered by the net.
