Length-weight relationships for fishes off the southwestern coast of Taiwan

WS Chu, JP Wang, YY Hou, YT Ueng, PH Chu


Length-weight relationships are presented for 24 fish species representing 12 families captured monthly from February 2009 to March 2010, off the southwestern coast of Taiwan. 12 of these species are documented in fishbase, but no length-weight relationships were available. One record of maximum length was recorded. Among all estimated parameter b of 24 species, there was significant difference of 3 for 15 species. Compared length-weight relationships with previous studies, the trends were obviously different.

Key words: Length-weight, fish species, fishbase.
