This report presents the results of a survey of larval fish in the nearshore zone of the central basin of Lake Erie from Conneaut to Sandusky, Ohio. Larval fish were sampled at 10 transects during each of 8 cruise periods between 2 May and 9 August 1978. Concentrations of fish larvae were calculated on the basis of the number of larvae collected in each tow and the volume of water filtered, as computed from flowmeter data. Mean density of each species group was calculated and expressed as numbers of larvae per 100 cu m. Of the 25 taxa collected, larval clupeids, emerald shiner (Notropis atherinoides) and spottail shiner (N. hudsonius) comprised 82.4% of the larval fish captured. Significant differences were not detected between the 10 transects for prolarval or total larval densities of rainbow smelt, carp/goldfish, and logperch or for prolarval densities of spottail shiners and yellow perch.
