Herring egg production and environmental conditions

A study of Atlantic herring (Clupea harengus) in the North and Norwegian seas finds that both egg production and egg mass, which reflect ovary development, varied with environmental influences, such as poor feeding conditions, but across different time scales, suggesting that the seasonality of environmental factors should be incorporated into reproductive capacity estimates for fish stocks. - Read at PNAS
