Saffron Cod

 

(Eleginus gracilis), a fish of the family Gadidae. The maximum length of the saffron cod is 50 cm, but its average length is 30-35 cm, and it weighs up to 0.5 kg. (It is larger than the navaga.) It is distributed in the northern part of the Pacific Ocean, and it is found in the seas along the eastern shores of the USSR. The saffron cod enters waters of low salinity and even fresh water. Its spawning time is from December to February, and its fertility ranges from 25,000 to 210,000 eggs. It is a commercial fish.

The saffron cod (Eleginus gracilis) is a gadid fish distributed from the northern Gulf of Alaska (GOA), around the Pacific Rim into the Sea of Okhotsk, and into the Arctic Ocean abutting the North Pacific Ocean (Cohen et al., 1990; Mecklenburg et al., 2016).

For example, if we estimated 100 individual fish from fish taxon A (e.g., saffron cod, Eleginus gracilis) and 300 fish from all fish taxa in all stomachs sampled from that beluga stock, then the % N of taxon A (saffron cod) for that stock was 100/300 or 33%.

Several species of forage fish are known to occur in Prince William Sound between May and July including capelin (Mallotus villosus), eulachon (Thaleichthys pacificus), sand lance (Ammodytes hexapterus), Pacific herring (Clupea pallasi), unidentified smelt species (Brown et al., 2002), pink salmon (Onchorhynchus gorbuscha) and saffron cod (Eleginus gracilis).
We analyzed abundance indices, as logetransformed catch-per-unit-effort (CPUE), of four marine species (arctic cod, Boreogadus saida; fourhorn sculpin, Myoxocephalus quadricornis; arctic flounder, Pleuronectes glacialis; saffron cod, Eleginus gracilis); two freshwater species (round whitefish, Prosopium cylindraceum; arctic grayling, Thymallus arcticus); and the anadromous rainbow smelt, Osmerus mordax, to determine whether there were increases in the abundances of marine species and declines in anadromous and freshwater species.
On a analyse les indices d'abondance, exprimes en loge des prises par unite d'effort (PPUE), de quatre especes marines (morue arctique, Boreogadus saida; chaboisseau a quatre cornes, Myoxocephalus quadricornis; plie arctique, Pleuronectes glacialis; navaga jaune, Eleginus gracilis); deux especes d'eau douce (menomini rond, Prosopium cylindraceum, et ombre arctique, Thymallus arcticus); ainsi qu'une espece anadrome (eperlan arc-en-ciel, Osmerus mordax), afin de determiner s'il y avait une augmentation dans l'abondance des especes marines et une diminution dans les especes anadromes et d'eau douce.
This group includes the anadromous rainbow smelt (Osmerus mordax); freshwater species, arctic grayling (Thymallus arcticus) and round whitefish (Prosopium cylindraceum); and marine species, arctic cod (Boreogadus saida), saffron cod (Eleginus gracilis), fourhorn sculpin (Myoxocephalus quadricornis), and arctic flounder (Pleuronectes glacialis).
