Abstract

Both drift and retention processes operated in concert to split and disperse the larval population. Retention was probably physically based, through the action of a "leaky' gyre around Browns Bank. Although similar processes are believed to have influenced the distribution of Browns Bank cod Gadus morhua larvae, the interspecific difference in spawning time, coupled with the apparent instability of the gyre, produced a different balance between transported and retained larvae. -from Authors
