                         flow intensity and mesoscale ocean processes, all affect sardine 
                         production, both in eastern and western boundary current systems. 
                         Here we tested the hypothesis whether extreme high and low 
                         commercial landings of the Brazilian sardine fisheries in the 
                         South Brazil Bight (SBB) are sensitive to different oceanic 
                         conditions. An ocean model (ROMS) and an individual based model 
                         (Ichthyop) were used to assess the relationship between oceanic 
                         conditions during the spawning season and commercial landings of 
                         the Brazilian sardine one year later. Model output was compared 
                         with remote sensing and analysis data showing good consistency. 
                         Simulations indicate that mortality of eggs and larvae by low 
                         temperature prior to maximum and minimum landings are 
                         significantly higher than mortality caused by offshore advection. 
                         However, when periods of maximum and minimum sardine landings are 
                         compared with respect to these causes of mortality no significant 
                         differences were detected. Results indicate that mortality caused 
                         by prevailing oceanic conditions at early life stages alone can 
                         not be invoked to explain the observed extreme commercial landings 
                         of the Brazilian sardine. Likely influencing factors include 
                         starvation and predation interacting with the strategy of spawning
