Description
The survey is intended to collect information on maturity, sex ratio, growth, etc. for a number of species that are of commercial importance. The survey takes place in early spring, the time when most fish spawn. It is important to sample during the spawning season as immature fish can be easily distinguished from mature fish during this time.
