Weight-total length and length-length relationships for four saltwater fishes
MetadataShow full item record
Weight-total length relationships were developed for red snapper (Lutjanus campechanus), vermilion snapper (Rhombolites aurorubens), Spanish mackerel (Scomberomorus maculatus) and dolphin (Coryphaena hippurus) caught relationships were developed for red snapper and vermilion snapper. Total length-fork length relationships were developed for Spanish mackerel and dolphin. Regression coefficients for equations in the form of Y = a + bX were estimated for log 10 transformed weight (W) as a function of log 10 transformed total length (TL), TL as a function of standard length (SL), 10 and TL as function of fork-length (FL). The equations developed for the species in this study were generally different from those reported in other studies.
