Pacific sardine subpopulation study region with size composition in each sampling area. N cz: number sampled. S = number of samples. METHODS Specimens were laid out straight and frozen immediately after cap- ture at sea. After thawing in the laboratory, identification tags were attached and scales taken for age determination. The fish again were laid out straight and preserved in a 10% solution of formalin for a minimum period of 3 weeks. -Morphometric characters were selected on the basis of least likelihood • if correlation with each other. Meristie characters were limited due to the difficulty of making accurate counts on some. All morphometric measurements were made by the author and all meristie counts were double checked. The following morphometric measurements were made: standard length, head length, pectoral fin length, and postpelvic length. Standard length consisted of the distance from the tip of the snout to.
