Fish Eggs & Larvae Drawings

Fish Eggs, Larvae, and Fry

These drawings were done the old-fashioned way, called stippling, at the New York Ocean Science Laboratory (NYOSL) during the period between summer, 1973 to summer, 1974. Some of these drawings are of identified species, while others are not. All of these fish eggs and larvae were collected in Long Island Sound.
