Koranteng, K.A. (1993) Size at first maturity of the anchovy (Engraulis encrasicolus) in Ghanaian waters and suggestions for appropriate mesh size in its fishery. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 16(1), pp. 29-30.
The main length at first maturity of anchovy Engraulis encrasicolus in Ghanaian waters has been estimated using length-frequency and gonad data sampled between June 1983 and September 1986 off Accra and Tema, Ghana. The length at first maturity of these fish is around 5.7 cm (fork length). The minimum mesh size for rational exploitation of the resource in Ghanaian waters is put at about 20 mm (0.8 inch).
