  • Estimating cod egg developmental stage based on DNA concentration 

    Espeland, Sigurd Heiberg; Sannæs, Hanne (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    Pelagic egg surveys are commonly used to map Atlantic cod spawning areas in the northeastern Atlantic. However, a sampling location may not necessarily indicate a spawning location, because more developed eggs may have ...
