Although most fish species spawn during spring, ensuring a temporal coincidence of their larvae with the planktonic bloom, several spawn during winter. During the International Bottom Trawl Survey (IBTS), the MRN (Midwater Ring Net) sampling is performed each year during winter (January-February) all over the eastern English Channel (EEC) and North Sea. Until now, MRN data have been mainly used for stock assessment of North Sea Herring. Hence, the aim of the present study is to focus on others species (especially flatfishes) found in samples collected in 2016 and to determine spatial patterns in larval fish assemblages in relation to environmental conditions.
