Abstract

The purpose of this study is to highlight new aspects regarding the behavior of Engraulis encrasicolus (Linnaeus, 1758) anchovy on the Romanian Black Sea coast, anchovy being one of the most important economically species in the Black Sea riparian countries and with great importance in the trophic chain of the marine ecosystem. Thus, some behavioral aspects in the migration process of anchovy for feeding, reproduction and for wintering are underlined. Different changes were observed in anchovy behavior: the feeding period overlaps with the breeding period, the temperature is a declining factor of the breeding process, the preparation for wintering determine increased levels of lipids.
