Abstract


Growth of juvenile Sarpa salpa from the Kornati Archipelago, eastern middle Adriatic Sea was analysed. A total of 1515 juveniles, ranging in length from 1.6 to 14.2 cm, were caught. Most individuals (94.65%) belonged to the 0+ cohort. The first settlers were aged 1.5-2.0 months, and probably entered shallow coves at the end of November. The relationship between total length and weight indicates positive allometric growth (b = 3.284). The condition factor, as a consequence of length-weight relationship, was CF = 1.41. The parabolic (c = 0.023 mm days-1; R2= 0.936) and Gompertz (c = 0.047 mm days-1; R2 = 0.897) growth models seem to be the most appropriate for the description of young S. salpa growth.
