dc.description.abstractABSTRACT: Late larval stages of anchovy Engraulis encrasicolus ranging from 10 to 20 mm standard length were sampled in the 2009 Mediterranean Acoustic Surveys project carried out during the spawning season off the Ebro River plume (NW Mediterranean [NWM] population) and the Bay of Málaga (SW Mediterranean [SWM] population). A combined study of environmental variables, daily growth, otolith biometry and stable isotope analysis (SIA) was undertaken to differentiate the trophic influence on larval growth rates. An inter-population comparative analysis determined trophic-based differences in their growth patterns. The NWM population showed a specialized prey selectivity associated with a low productive ecosystem in contrast to the SWM population, which showed a more generalist feeding behavior associated with an ecosystem of higher food resources. Moreover, 13C values were significantly different between populations, indicating the different origin of carbon sources. The intra-population analysis, differentiating between an optimum and deficient growth group as defined by a prior residual analysis, showed a direct relationship between growth potential and feeding behavior. Higher growth rates registered significantly greater 15N values and thereby showed a higher trophic position, indicating a greater feeding specialization in larvae originating from less productive regions. Such was not the case in the area of higher productivity. Furthermore, both populations showed that carbon sources were decisive in defining better growth potential. Finally, otolith biometry clearly differentiated between growth rates in the optimum and deficient larval growth groups.es_ES
