The pilchard is one of the most important fishes of the English Channel.
The egg of the pilchard is very easily distinguished from other pelagic eggs by the unusually large space separating the vitelline membrane from the contained ovum.
Pilchards feed on minute crustaceans and other pelagic animals and require two or three years before they attain their full size, which is about 10 in.

 CSIRO - Pilchard deaths
Although it is not uncommon for fish, including pilchards, to die off suddenly in an area, these are the only two instances that we know of anywhere in the world where pilchards have died in such large numbers over such a wide region.
This herpesvirus was consistently present in the gills of affected pilchards, and absent from the gills of healthy pilchards.
This would have required pilchards to be kept in large tanks and infected with the herpes virus, a difficult task as pilchards are not well suited to being kept in captivity.

The pilchard spawning area ([A.sub.1]) in a given year was calculated by summing the areas of 1 [degrees] longitude x 1 [degrees] latitude squares where early developmental stage eggs were present.
The spawning grounds of Japanese pilchard are known to expand with egg abundance increases and contract with abundance declines (Watanabe et al., 1996; Zenitani et al., 1998).
We used the pilchard biomass estimated along the Pacific coast of Japan from 1977 to 1995 by Wada and Jacobson (1998).

 Welwitschia starts looking for pilchard   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
The pelagic industry hopes to receive their 2001 pilchard quotas early in May since this research normally takes a month to complete with another month required by the ministry's experts to process the data and to prepare a submission to cabinet.
The pilchard industry in Walvis Bay is concerned about the low pilchard quotas they received last year while they are of the opinion that the stock is relatively good.
Although nearly all canned pilchard from the catches of last year have been sold, the industry still believes that the inconsistency and uncertainty of pelagic quotas is one of the main reasons why the marketers of canned pilchard cannot succeed in securing consistent markets in European countries.

Fractions of semi-purified material are being used as a source of nucleic acid for further nucleotide sequencing of the viral genome, inter alia to determine the relationship between the 1995 and the 1998 pilchard herpesvirus in Australia, as well as the 1995 New Zealand pilchard herpesvirus.
Histology revealed that some of the pilchards at the end of the trial displayed gill lesions similar to early lesions seen in pilchards naturally affected by the herpesvirus during the mortality event.
