Abstract

Two alternate classes of mechanisms that could account for evidence of density-dependent growth in Engraulis ringens are introduced: 1) effects of potential linkages of school size with population size, and 2) effects of size-dependent predation. These may lead to different interpretations with respect to resilience to exploitation, carrying capacity of the habitat, etc., from those implied by the more commonly cited class of mechanisms which involve impact of the population on its food supply. -Author
