MetadataShow full item record
Regression equations were developed between standard length (SL) and total length (TL) for Brevoortia patronus, Anchoa mitchilli, and Micropogon undulatus taken from Galveston Bay, Texas. The standard length-total length conversion equation for B. patronus was TL = 0.62044 + 1.25323 SL, and for A. mitchilli it was TL = 0.22391 + 1.20634 SL. The conversion equations for M. undulatus changed with body length: TL = 1.21592 + 1.26753 SL (for fish 28-95 mm SL); TL = 9.70548 + 1.17538 SL (for fish 102-159 mm SL); and TL = 19.88505 + 1.10952 SL (for fish 168 - 255 mm SL).
