We examined otoliths, pelvic fin rays and scales of inconnu to determine precision of age estimates within and between readers, and to compare relative accuracy of estimates from different structures. [...] Key Result Among- and within-reader variation was low for both fin rays and otoliths, but higher for scales. Variation tended to increase with fish length for all structures.Expand Abstract
