Abstract or Summary
  • A 1½-yr survey of planktonic fish larvae collected from 2 to 111 km off the mid-Oregon coast in 1971-72 yielded 287 samples which contained 23,578 individuals in 90 taxonomic groups, 78 identified at the species level. Two distinct faunal assemblages were founds a "coastal" assemblage 2 to 28 km offshore and an "offshore" assemblage 37 to 111 km from shore. The coastal group was dominated by Osmeridae, Parophrys vetulus, Isopsetta isolepis, and Microgadus proximus. The offshore group was dominated by Sebastes spp., Stenobrachius leucopsarus, Tarletonbeania crenularis, Lyopsetta exilis, and Engraulis mordax. Peak abundance in both assemblages occurred between February and July when >90% of all larvae were taken. Larval distribution patterns in each assemblage were similar in 1971 and 1972, but larval abundance was greater in 1971 than 1972. Ninety-nine percent of the larvae in 53 taxa designated as coastal and 96% of the larvae in 31 taxa designated as offshore were taken 2 to 28km or 37 to 111 km offshore respectively. This separation of coastal and offshore larvae may be explained, in part, by adult spawning locations and current circulation patterns. The species of larvae present in the coastal assemblage were similar to those in Yaquina Bay, but dominant species were quite different. The coastal zone is an important spawning area for P. vetulus, which utilizes Yaquina Bay estuary as a nursery during part of its early life.
