reportposted on 1939-01-01, 00:00 authored by Paul M. Hansen
In order to investigate the occurrence of the yearclasses in the stock of cod at West Greenland a great number of otoliths of cod has been collected and age-determined during the period: 1924 to 1938. Nearly all the cod from which otoliths have been taken are measured and sexed. Cod of the youngest groups, the I-, II- and III-group, have been fished for with the eel-seine near the shore. The length measurements and the results of the fishery for the youngest age-groups shall be dealt with in a future paper. Here the age-analyses on older cod only shall be mentioned.
