Fig. 2. Somatic growth and gonad investment as proportion of the surplus mass accumulated during the year for Atlantic cod from southern Georges Bank (GB, 1999 and 2000) and Gulf of St. Lawrence (SG, 1998 and 1999). Mass allocations were calculated for ages of fish corresponding to lengths of 65–75 cm. Data were obtained from the studies of McIntyre and Hutchings (2003), Chouinard et al. (MS 2005), and O’Brien et al. (MS 2006).
