Fig. 47. Catch rates of 9 families of leptocephali at each station along 175°E transects north and south of the Fiji Islands (A–C), and temperature and salinity sections down to 500 m made from the CTD profiles at each sampling station in the western South Pacific (bottom panels), in August 1995 during the KH-95-2 sampling survey. The black lines below the station labels of the catch rate plots indicate which stations were sampled at night. The Fiji islands are located from 16–18°S, to the east of Stn. 73–76. These transects can be seen in the bottom right side of Fig. 4A. Catch rates are calculated based on the number of leptocephali collected per amount of water filtered by the net.
