Two methods of enhancing growth bands on vertebral centra-silver nitrate impregnation and X -radiography -have proven to be successful when used on centra from 130 blue, Prionace glauca, 143 common thresher ,Alopias vulpinus, and 44 shortfin maim, Isurus oxyrinchus, sharks. Bands were counted and measured, and these data were used to construct growth curves based on the von Bertalanffy and logistic growth models. The problems of verification of these counts, and validation of the periodicity of…

Age and growth of the blue shark, Prionace glauca Linnaeus, 1758, in the Northwest coast off Mexico Edad y crecimiento del tiburón azul, Prionace glauca Linnaeus, 1758, en la costa noroeste de México

The blue shark is one of the main species caught in the artisanal fisheries in the northwest coast of Mexico. The age and growth was estimated by counting the growth bands on vertebral centra stained

PRELIMINARY INVESTIGATIONS INTO THE AGE AND GROWTH OF THE SHORTFIN MAKO, ISURUS OXYRINCHUS, WHITE SHARK, CARCHARODON CARCHARIAS, AND THRESHER SHARK, ALOPIAS VULPINUS, IN THE WESTERN NORTH ATLANTIC OCEAN

TLDR
Preliminary analysis of the vertebrae of these three species indicate that the current processing method is adequate for counting bands and the vertebral centra are appropriate structures to use for aging these species.

Age and growth of the blue shark (Prionace glauca) in the Indian Ocean

Age and growth estimates of the blue shark Prionace glauca in the central South Pacific Ocean

The age and growth of the blue shark Prionace glauca in the central South Pacific is described based on 267 specimens that were collected by scientific observers on board Taiwanese large-scale tuna

AGE AND GROWTH OF THE BLUE SHARK, PRIONACE GLAUCA, IN THE NORTH ATLANTIC OCEAN

TLDR
The blue shark grows faster and has a shorter life span than previously reported in these waters and growth rates from tag-recaptures agreed with those derived from vertebral annuli for smaller sharks but appeared overestimated for larger sharks.

Validated age and growth of the leopard shark, Triakis semifasciata, with comments on reproduction

TLDR
Seasonal changes in size modes of young-of-the-year leopard sharks, centrum edge characteristics, and growth and tetracycline mark-recapture from the field were used to validate annual deposition of vertebral centrum band pairs.

Age determination and growth of the bonnethead shark Sphyrna tiburo: a comparison of two populations

TLDR
Growth of sharks born and held in captivity demonstrated that the male and female growth curves diverge after ∼1 yr and that mean sizes at age are statistically distinct after ∼2 yr, and females grew to larger sizes tha males and apparently are longer-lived.

Age validation of the blue shark (Prionace glauca) in the eastern Pacific Ocean

The blue shark (Prionace glauca) is subjected to high levels of fishery catch and by-catch worldwide; thus, knowledge of their productivity and population status is vital, yet basic assumptions of

TLDR
The results of an investigation undertaken to what extent the pattern presented by the calcified laminae of the centrum is of value as an aid to the classification of Elasmobranch fishes, and to the identification of vertebrae found in the fossil state are recorded.

CALCIUM AND PHOSPHORUS IN THE BLOOD AND SKELETON OF THE ELASMOBRANCHII1

TLDR

TLDR
Since the early 1950s a sport fishery for sharks has existed off south-west England and the catch consists almost entirely of blue sharks, the majority of which are immature or adolescent females.

Manual of Methods for Fish Stock Assessment. Part I. Fish Population Analysis.

TLDR
The population size of fish stock fluctuates every year, the amount of fish, so it is necessary to study the population dynamics of the stocks under the current exploitation regime.
