Abstract

Herring larvae were sampled during the lllLS in the ICES area IVa from 1990 to 1997. Larval growth was determined based on otolith microstructure analysis from larvae of 7-25mm standard length. The data were correlated to the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) and the intlow of Atlantic water (AW) at the same period.
The study showed a strong correlation between positive NAO years with a higher inflow of AW and subsequently higher larval growth rates. which could be an indication of favorable growth conditions
