SPRAT, a marine fish (Clu pea sprattcts), named garvie in Scotland, one of the smallest species of the genus Clupea or herrings, rarely exceeds 5 in.
Sprats are very often confounded with young herrings, which they much resemble, but can always be distinguished by the kdlowing characters: they do not possess any teeth on the palate (vomer), like herrings; their gill-covers are smooth, without the radiating striae which are found in.
The sprat is one of the more important foodfishes on account of the immense numbers which are caught when tha shoals approach the coasts.

The percentage of sexually mature males and females of herring from the southern coast spring spawning population and sprat at age groups and length classes were investigated according to aggregated years and the Bornholm and Gdańsk basins.
Moreover, the length of herring and sprat at first sexual maturity for particular year classes was calculated, and logistic curves of maturity ogives were elaborated.
In these decades the fraction of sprat from age group 1, which begins spawning for the first time, increased in comparison with the 1980s from 26 to 38% in the Bornholm Basin and from 14 to 18% in the Gdańsk Basin.

Blaney: Catches of sprat of the order of 1,400 tons were made on the east coast in 1964, 1965 and 1966, but landings of this species fell considerably in 1967 and 1968.
A survey of the stocks of sprats in the Irish Sea was begun by my Department in 1964 using the research vessel “Cú Feasa” to assess the potential for sprat fishing in the area as a source of raw material for industrial purposes.
Since the sprat is a comparatively short-lived species, it is not possible to forecast their availability on a long-term basis but landings by fishermen are being sampled by my Department to assess the conditions of the stock from time to time.

A clearer numerical share of females was noted among sprat than among herring with regard to the natural ageing of the fish and increasing length.
The average numerical share of herring females in the 1990s did not exhibit a significant change from that in the 1980s; however, the share of sprat females increased both in the Bornholm Basin from 48.4 to 54.4% and in the Gdańsk Basin from 50.3 to 52.6%.
In comparison with herring, the differences in the sex ratio of sprat from the Bornholm and Gdańsk basins were clear.
