Anchovy populations, similar to other small pelagic fishes, are subject to considerable fluctuations that are primarily associated with changes in the natural mortality rates induced by environmental variability (Cushing, 1988). The present study measured anchovy biomass and environmental variables (e.g., temperature and salinity) along a sequence of five cruises to assess the effects of different environmental variables on the presence and distribution of juvenile and adult in the Brazilian sector of the Southwest Atlantic Ocean. ...
