Fig. 49. Catch rates of 3 families of leptocephali at each station during 2 sampling surveys in the East China Sea during late autumn (Oct–Dec) and late spring (May–June) (A, B), and during two surveys in Suruga Bay during late autumn (Oct–Nov) and late spring (May–June) (C, D), which show seasonal differences in catches between surveys. Catch rates are calculated based on the number of leptocephali (ind.) collected per amount of water filtered by the net.
