Fig. 52. Vertical distribution 8 species/genera of leptocephali of 6 families of leptocephali collected in the Sargasso Sea at various times of spring, summer, and fall from 1983–1985 using a 2 m ring net during both day (white bars) and night (black bars) in the study of Castonguay and McCleave (1987a). The 4 left panels are from the summer/fall and the 4 right panels are from the winter/spring surveys. Catches are plotted as the number of leptocephali per volume of water filtered by the net during all the tows. Redrawn from Castonguay M, McCleave JD, Vertical distributions, diel and ontogenetic vertical migrations and net avoidance of leptocephali of Anguilla and other common species in the Sargasso Sea, Journal of Plankton Research, 1987, 9(1), 195–214, by permission of Oxford University Press.
