Accrescimento degli otoliti e loro relazione con la crescita delle taglie in nasello, mostella e potassolo del Golfo di Taranto (Mar Ionio)


The authors refer about the study of otoliths in Merluccius merluccius, Micromesistius poutassou and Phycis blennoides, catched in the Ionian sea during the spring of 1985, on the trawling bottoms untill 770 m in deepth. There are obtained the body lengths from otolith measurements by means the backcalculation formula, controlled the age in respect to total lengths in the single species and analyzed the correlation and regression coefficients among otoliths and size lengths. Data obtained are discussed with data in the literature.
