Summary/Recommendations/Objectives:

Length-weight data on
fishes collected from various

locations can be
used to calculate typical average weights

for fishes of
specific lengths. Differences in weight of fishes

of similar length
is best expressed in terms of a relative

condition
factor, which is calculated by dividing an

observed weight by a
typical average weight for fishes of

a certain length.
