In our study, the biomass of the aggregations was dominated by Argentine anchoita, followed by rough scad, Atlantic chub mackerel, American coastal pellona, Brazilian sardinella, flying gurnard, and Atlantic cutlassfish, all of which may play a key role in the pelagic ecosystem of the SBB.
The massive schools of flying gurnard juveniles detected in the water column were an uncommon and previously unreported phenomenon because this fish, which is morphologically adapted for living on soft bottoms (i.
Our results reveal that there were 2 groupings of species that showed high occurrence and attained the highest biomass in specific water masses in the SBB in the spring-summer season: 1) the grouping that was strongly related to SACW and was composed mostly of Argentine anchoita, Atlantic cutlassfish, rough scad, piquitinga anchovy, white snake mackerel, and Atlantic chub mackerel and 2) the grouping that was formed mostly by Brazilian sardinella, flying gurnard, false pilchard, American coastal pellona, Atlantic thread herring, castin leatherjacket, and Atlantic bumper (Chloroscombrus chrysurus) and was strongly associated with CW and areas of mixing between CW and SACW.
Although some species, such as the flying gurnard, Brazilian sardinella, and piquitinga anchovy, have been more abundant in a specific water mass, they co-occurred more frequently with species that were more abundant in another water mass.
