This document describes the abundance and distribution
whiting from an acoustic survey on the Spanish
continental shelf (Divisions VIIIc and IXa2). The
total biomass was 171 thousand tonnes, corresponding
Only young fish were recorded in the whole area surveyed, with
similar length and age distribution to those found in the fishery
(Ages 0-5). Older fish were not detected in this area, at least
in the spawning season.
A comparison of the distribution and densities of blue whiting
observed in this survey with those recorded in 1984 show that the
distribution pattern in this area is quite stable.
