SIZE-AGE  STRUCTURE  IN  SAFFRON  COD  COMMERCIAL  AGGREGATIONS IN  THE  WESTERN  BERING  SEA  IN  2003–2012
I.К. Trofimov
SAFFRON COD, SIZE AND AGE COMPOSITION, DANISH SEINE, FYKE NET, KARAGINSKY GULF, SHELF OF THE KORYAK HIGHLAND
Size and age structure of saffron cod from Danish seine and fyke net catches in the Western Bering Sea has been analyzed on the data for 2003–2012. The body length of the fish in summer and autumn Danish seine catches varied as 13–49 cm in Karaginsky Gulf and as 21–51 cm on the coast of Koryak Highland. The ages of the fish in the catches were 2+–11+ and 2+–12+ respectively. The body length of the fish in winter and spring fyke net catches in Ossora Bay (Karaginsky Gulf) varied as 15–49 cm, and the age of the fish was 1–9 years. The Danish seine catches of saffron cod on the coast of Koryak Highland consisted of commercial sized fish only; the bycatch of none commercial sized fish in Karaginsky Gulf did not exceed tenths of percent in the Danish seine fishing and of 1.4% in the fyke net fishing. There is no difference revealed between the Danish seine and the fyke net catches in size composition of 2+–5+ saffron cod individuals as a basis of the commercial stock of this species in Karaginsky Gulf.

FLATFISH, GROWTH, BIOMASS, PRODUCTION
On the basis of material collected in 1977 and 2002–2014 years studied the growth and formation of somatic production 7 flatfishes mass species, that live in the northern part of the Sea of Okhotsk. It was found that, depending on the rate of weight growth and the rate of natural decline with age fish, flatfish between species observed  enough  significant  differences  in  the  asymmetry  of  parabolic  curves  of  biomass  dynamics  that characterize the different rate of increase of biomass and its loss. The largest amplitude of these changes are observed in the polar swing flounder, and the lowest trajectory of growth and biomass loss observed in longlived halibut. In general, the studied species aggregate amount of somatic products produced by all generations per year, roughly equal proportions of individual’s products remaining in the system and disposed of it due to natural mortality, with a slight excess of this value in the latter. The magnitude of the P/B ratio flounder northern Sea of Okhotsk significantly inferior to similar types of western Kamchatka shelf. The data obtained suggest that the relatively low value of stocks of northern flounders due not only to adverse conditions of their habitat in early ontogeny, and consequently high mortality of early juveniles, but also a lower rate of formation of somatic production in conditions of the northern part of the Sea of Okhotsk

AVACHINSKAYA BAY, SOUTHEASTERN KAMCHATKA, ICHTHYOFAUNA, SPECIES COMPOSITION
Current composition of ichthyofauna of Avachinskaya Bay (Southeastern Kamchatka) is considered on the base of data obtained for the period 1990–2005 and compared to results for the 1930th. One species of lampreys and 76 species of fishes of 23 families are registered. The comparison allows to make conclusion of general similarity (78% approximately) between species composition of ichthyofauna in early XX century and in late XX – early XXI centuries. The basis of the similarity (respectively in 74 and 78%) was formed by representatives of 10 families. Meantime, in some sites of the bay affected anthropogenic influence the abundance and the diversity of species has been decreased in 1990–2000th comparing to the 1930th.

COMMON-POOL RESOURCES, ACCESS MODE, AQUATIC BIOLOGICAL RESOURCES, SOCIAL DILEMMAS

Over-exploitation of aquatic biological resources is considered from the perspective of the problems of resources sharing. Movable nature of much of living aquatic resources limits the possibility of excluding users not only on the high seas. Game theory, the development of rules and regulations in line with institutional economics can be used as tools of economic development sustainable use of living aquatic resources.

Monitoring of phytoplankton on West Kamchatkan shelf was accomplished on a local area in the north-east part of Okhotsk Sea and covered all spring and summer stages of algae plankton development from spring maximum in the course of “blossoming” in late May until seasonal minimum in late August. In 2008 the summer plankton on the shelf revealed 97 microalgae species and subspecies from 7 classes. The pool included representatives  of  Bacillariophyceae  (76),  Dinophyceae  (15),  Dictyochophyceae  (1),  Chrysophyceae  (1), Euglenophyceae (1), Cryptophyceae (1), Prymnesiophyceae (2). In late May (period of “blossoming”) the plankton algae were concentrated in the epipelagic zone, in early summer (mid June) — in the layer of temperature jump, and in late summer (the third decade of August) — in the demersal layer. The quantitative characteristics of the phytoplankton varied within wide ranges: the abundance was from 1 to 107 cells/l, the biomass — from 0.001 to 23 825 mg/m3. The maximum biomass of the autotrophic plankton (up to 23 g/m3) was revealed in the surface layer in late May, what is typical for productive high latitude zones of World ocean, including the northern part of the West Kamchatkan shelf. The qualitative characteristics of the phytoplankton (species diversity, abundance and biomass) demonstrated similar dynamics in all stations: a decrease from early to late summer (vegetative) period, according to natural seasonal dynamics of marine boreal populations of microalgae. The irregular distribution of the microalgae species within the area of the monitoring on the West Kamchatkan shelf should be taken into account in the course of exploration of oil and gas deposites on this site.

SOME  RESULTS  OF  STATISTICAL  PROCESSING  (1972–2014)  THE  DATA  ON  THE ICE  EXTENT  IN  THE  SEA  OF  OKHOTSK
V.V. Kolomeytsev

THE SEA OF OKHOTSK, ICE EXTENT, CORRELATION ANALYSIS, REGRESSIONEQUATION

The paper has demonstrated statistics on the ice extent in the Sea of Okhotsk averaged by ten-day periods. Strong positive linear correlations have been revealed between the ice extent values for adjacent ten-day periods. Statistical characteristics of the averaged values of the ice extent in the Sea of Okhotsk and coefficients of correlation and determination were calculated, and regression equations were obtained to predict the ice extent area on the base of the value for the former ten-day period. It was found that the variability of the current sea ice extent area was in 70–92% determined by the variability for the former ten-day period.
