Apropos of the present review, these authors found that Pacific hake (as well as other important gadoids
in the Gulf of Alaska, walleye pollock, Theragra chalcogramma, and Pacific cod, Gadus macrocephalus) appeared to respond more strongly to interannual variability than to decadal climate variability, and they had a statistically higher proportion of strong year classes in unusually warm years than in other years.
Evidence for density-dependent growth in North Sea gadoids
Work by Engas and Godo (1989a) indicates that the effective width of a demersal trawl used for sampling gadoids
is related to fish size.
A 1 otolith per 1 cm length frequency currently used for many flatfish and some smaller gadoids
and a 3 otolith per 3 cm length frequency currently used for many of the larger gadoids
Similar size-dependent differences in the distance of seasonal migrations were reported for Pacific hake (Merluccius productus), another gadoid
from the north Pacific (Dorn, 1995).
Diel variation in the catchability of gadoids
and its influence on the reliability of abundance indices.
These studies would be most meaningful for the eastern Bering Sea semipelagic gadoids
walleye pollock and Pacific cod.
, and global weather phenomena that may have indirectly influenced the abundance of lobsters within the Gulf of Maine (Fogarty 1995).

Isolation of twenty low stutter di- and tetranucleotide microsatellites for population analyses of walleye pollock and other gadoids
Therefore, because the liver is generally the organ with the highest levels of lipid storage for gadoids
, the HSI may be considered a good descriptor of female condition, and a strong influence on reproduction (Marshall et al.
