Abstract

In the current work we modeled the relationship between global atmospheric indices, seasonal sea surface temperature and coastal upwelling on the recruitment of the Ibero-Atlantic sardine. To study long-term Ibero-Atlantic sardine population dynamics a historical recruitment index (HRI) was developed from 1947 to 2012, for the Portuguese west coast, the main recruitment area of the Ibero-Atlantic sardine stock. HRI was calculated as the number of individuals
