During April-June, 1967, tow-netting for bass eggs was carried out at four places on the Irish coast. Small numbers of bass eggs were obtained at two of these places, namely the Splaugh Rock, near Greenore Point, Co. Wexford and Youghal Harbour, Co. Cork. They were taken near the surface, in water of the salinity range 30-34.5 0/00,and of surface temperature range 10.5-13.2 °C. The Irish material was larger than described by Bertolini (1933) from the Mediterranean, but smaller than described by Jackman (1954), who hatched eggs spawned in the Plymouth Laboratory Aquarium and described the larvae.
