In a recent article, a new factor has been proposed to assess condition in fish (Jones et al. 1999). It is based not only on body mass and length, but also on body height. The new factor, B (= M/(L2 × H); M, L and H = body mass, length and height, respectively), was tested against the traditional factor of Fulton, (K = M/L3) using data sets for two salmonid species, and it was found to be a better pred'ictor of body mass from body dimensions. B assumes that body thickness is better correlated… CONTINUE READING
