The argentine anchovy (E. anchoita) shows a distributional area between 35° and 47°30′ on the continental shelf off Argentina. This paper deals with some meristic and morphometric characters in order to test their power in separating different stocks. Those largely scattered distributions of morphologic features, which had been already pointed out other authors, make difficult to separate different stocks of this species on this basis.
