A number of experiments have been carried out with cod larvae in mesocosms at variable feeding conditions. Larval growth and survival has been monitored beyond metamorphosis, and in some of the experiments large subpopulations of emaciated cod larvae have been identified. A methodology for developing criteria for larval condition of general application to cod larvae is suggested based on measurements of standard length, dry weight and myotome height with age determined from the classification of yolk sac resorption.
