SINCLAIR, A., P. GAGNON, A. FRÉCHET, 1991. Seasonal distribution of cod in the northern Gulf of St. Lawrence. CAFSAC Res. Doc., 91/37, 19 p .

The spatial distribution of different sized cod in the 3Pn4RS management unit was investigated to identify possible closed areas to reduce the catch of small cod in the commercial fishery. Data from summer and winter groundfish surveys were used. The distribution of three size groups were analyzed : 0 to 29 cm - a size group rarely caught in the commercial fishery; 30 to 41cm - a size group below the market size and which is caught and discarded; and 42+cm - the market size group. The three size groups had similar distributions in summer, being abundant in coastal waters off northwestern Newfoundland and the north shore of the Gulf. Area closures at this time would have a major impact on the cod fishery. In winter, more spatial segregation was evident with the largest fish showing a more extensive migration into 3Pn than the other two size groups. Areas other than 3Pn acount for approximately 40 % of the winter fishery. The apparent differences in distribution migration and the patterns should be confirmed by analysis of commercial sampling and observer data.

Spectral analysis performed between inshore cod landings and alongshore winds revealed a cause and effect relationship. Landings responded at a large spatial scale and at periods consistent with storm events. It was not possible to predict landings by the use of past landings and the wind as a transfer function. Winds do not explain the recent decrease of cod catches.
