Abstract


In order to estimate the abundance and the distribution of the anchovy in the Northwest Mediterranean, a standardised series of acoustic evaluation cruises was carried out in 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993 and 1995. The series showed that there was agreement between the biomass estimations and the registered landings in the area. On the other hand, some areas were identified where the recruits were largely localised.
