Bsc Dissertation, University of Ghana, Legon, The period between the beginning of the increase of the GSI and its decrease corresponds to the reproduction period. In addition, several studies on recruitment show that the number of recruits per year would depend on abundance as well as the strategy of reproduction of the stock and the variability of their environment Blaxter, [35]; Cushing, [36]; Beyer and Laurence, [37]; Walters, [38], Sinclair, [39]; Cury, [40].
