In presence of a decrease in the catch from Infiernillo reservoir, Michoacán-Guerrero, Mexico, age and growth of tilapia Oreochromis aureus (Steindachner 1864) were estimated, as indispensable attributes for fishery management. Evaluations included scales and opercular bones readings and length frequency analysis. The population structure was determined too. Due to the great variation of tilapia individual growth and with the objective to have reliable growth estimations, linearized, non… CONTINUE READING
