[From ABSTRACT] ABSTRACTValidity of the use of the otolith in age-growth studies of the redfish (Sebastes marinus) is demonstrated. Otoliths accrue one opaque and one hyaline band a year.The opaque band begins to form in April, the hyaline band in September. Otoliths preserved in ethanol may be read whole, although those from larger fish are more easily read after they are sectioned. Otoliths stored dry must be sectioned for reading.Redfish larvae can be collected in surface waters throughout the period of spawning,April to September. The fry descend into mid-depths as they grow and first appear on the bottom in August. Redfish reach an average length of about 50 mm. in their first year of life. The sexes grow at virtually the same rate until the tenth year, after which the male grows more slowly than the female. Redfish of the Gulf of Maine grow more slowly than those of northern European waters. While dominant age classes appear in the collections of young fish, they are not obvious in samples of older, commercially available fish.
