SPATIAL AND SEASONAL PATTERNS IN SPECIES COMPOSITION AND OCCURRENCE OF FISH LARVAE IN THE AREA OF THE CANARY ISLANDS, EASTERN CENTRAL ATLANTIC

Similar to species that were ecologically characterized as neritic to bathydemersal (Table 7, Figure 24), the fish larvae from benthopelagic species were also encountered in larger concentrations southeast of Fuerteventura (Figure 25). Around Gran Canaria fish larvae from these ecological groups were also encountered close to coast. Benthopelagic species occur mainly above bottom depths of 1000 to 2000 m (Figure 25).
