Research has been conducted to study the relationship between some physical variables and the relative abundance of the northern stock of the Argentine anchovy (Engraulis anchoita) within the main area of distribution of the stock during springtime. Basic data were recorded during four research surveys mainly aimed at the acoustic assessment of the stock between 34°S and 41° 30'S (Buenos Aires prov., Argentina - Uruguay). The cruises were always carried out in October from 1993 to 1996. Several environmental variables were simultaneously input into a General Linear Model to analyze the variations on fish abundance; however, the model did not account for more than 17-20% of the total variance. Nevertheless most of those factors (sea surface temperature, surface salinity, stability of the water column, hydrographic environments, or the combined ranges of both temperature and salinity at the sea surface) were significant when considered as single factors. Neither the horizontal temperatur.....
