Capelin (Mallotus villosus) tridimensional distribution at the head of the Laurentian Channel in the St. Lawrence estuary was investigated using 38- and 120-kHz acoustic surveys in the summers of 1994, 1995, 1997, and 1998.
Capelin tidal dynamics is characterized by herding of capelin against the channel head slopes by the starting flooding currents, followed by an upwelling over the sills and shallows during maximum flood currents, and a return to the channel by the surface outflow during ebb.
Capelin (Mallotus villosus) (N=760) and herring (Clupea harengus) (N=165) were collected in the St. Lawrence estuary during the summer of 1994 and 1995 to examine the importance of pelagic fish in transmission of Anisakis simplex to cetaceans.

Capelin schools near the surface and close to shore are easily identified by their gray-blue color, well-defined shapes, and movements.
The capelin fishery was very small in 1994 and did not open in 1995 due to the high proportion of small females in the spawning biomass which did not meet Japanese market expectations for large females.
A typical pattern of increasing area of capelin schools during the spawning season in coastal waters is shown for the transect in Trinity Bay for July 7-19, 1994 (Figures 5 and 6).

 PROCEEDINGS OF THE EXPERT CONSULTATION TO EXAMINE CHANGES IN ABUNDANCE AND SPECIES COMPOSITION OF NERITIC FISH RESOURCES
Although capelin seldom grow larger than 20 cm in size and are short lived (3-5 years) their biomass in certain areas may reach millions of tonnes.
The tagging of adult capelin was, on the other hand, successful and results of estimates of the 1979 spawning stock abundance from the returns were on a similar level as those obtained by the acoustic method.
Since most of the capelin spawn only once and die thereafter the main management objective is to prevent the spawning stock from being fished to the level of reduced recruitment, not to mention recruitment failure.

 THE ROLE OF CAPELIN
f plankton are the main crop in the ocean, capelin are the main grazers.
Because the extent and the timing of cod migration, capelin migration and the warming of the bottom change from year to year, it can be misleading to compare one snapshot to another.
For example, capelin have normally left Division 2J before the annual groundfish survey reaches that area, so it is not surprising that cod stomachs are less full by the time the surveys gets to Hamilton Bank.
