We present length–weight relations (LWR) and use rapid, low-cost histological methods to describe the reproductive biology of the red-bellied fusilier, Caesio cuning (Bloch, 1791), and the longfin emperor, Lethrinus erythropterus Valenciennes, 1830, based on 137 and 139 specimens, respectively, collected from a remote area in Papua New Guinea. The LWR for C. cuning is W = 0.0208FL3.0322. We estimate male L50 at 12.6 cm FL and female L50 at 15.3 cm FL. Overall sex ratio of mature individuals is… Expand
