This manual is one of the results of the project Precision and Accuracy of Tools in Recruitment Studies (PARS), financed by the EU (FAIR-CT96–1371). The project PARS is concerned with improving the methodologies used in investigations and the monitoring of the early life stages of fish larvae, especially herring and sardine. These are important in both stock assessments and strategic research intended to improve predictive capability. The project deals with precision and accuracy issues in two categories of measurements, which together encompass most of the data that are routinely required from samples of early life stages of fish: • the growth and condition of individuals; • the origin of individuals. Quantitative evaluation of the growth rate and condition of larvae in relation to environmental conditions at the time of capture is an essential prerequisite for predictive assessment of survival potential. In particular, the identification of starving or sub-optimally growin.....
