COMMENTS:
     1. Otolith samples may refer to an individual haul or to groups of hauls in the same rectangle
        or within one sampling area, depending on the procedures on board. If detailed
        information is available, it would seem appropriate to refer back to the haul no and/or
        rectangle; these data are optional rather than mandatory.
     2. See Record Type 2.
     3. A plus group refers to the age indicated AND older, respectively to a reading of more than
        or equal to the specified number of rings. The use of a plus group should be avoided when
        possible.
     4. Only applicable for Herring and Whitefish.
     5. M and F in uppercase!
     6. Optional for Market sampling.

APPENDIX VI - Maturity index

1.       VIRGIN.

Male:    Testes very thin translucent ribbon lying along an unbranched blood vessel. No sign of
         development.

Female: Ovaries small, elongated, whitish, and translucent. No sign of development.



2.       MATURING.

Male:    Development has obviously started, colour is progressing towards creamy white and the
         testes are filling more and more of the body cavity but sperm cannot be extruded with only
         moderate pressure.

Female: Development has obviously started, eggs are becoming larger and the ovaries are filling more
        and more of the body cavity but eggs cannot be extruded with only moderate pressure.



3.       SPAWNING.



                                                    3

Male: Will extrude sperm under moderate pressure to advanced stage of extruding sperm freely with
some sperm still in the gonad.

Female: Will extrude eggs under moderate pressure to advanced stage of extruding eggs freely with
        some eggs still in the gonad.



4.      SPENT.

Male:   Testes shrunken with little sperm in the gonads but often some in the gonoducts that can be
        extruded under light pressure.

Female: Ovaries shrunken with few residual eggs and much slime.

5.      RESTING.

Male:   Testes firm, not translucent showing no development.

Female: Ovaries firm, not translucent showing no development.
