Relationships of Otolith Size to Fish Size and Otolith Ages for Yelloweye Sebastes ruberrimus and Quillback S. maliger Rockfishes

  title={Relationships of Otolith Size to Fish Size and Otolith Ages for Yelloweye Sebastes ruberrimus and Quillback S. maliger Rockfishes},
  author={Kristen M. Munk and Kathy M. Smikrud},
Sagittae otoliths of yelloweye Sebastes ruberrimus and quillback S. maliger rockfishes, two demersal shelf rockfish species inhabiting Southeast and Southcentral Alaska waters, were measured, weighed and aged. General relationships were explored among these parameters in relation to fish length, fish weight, and gender, to both document variability in these objective parameters of otolith growth, and to compare them to subjective otolith age estimates. Generally no statistical size difference… Expand
Fish length and otolith size of in Nemipterus randalli Russel, 1986 (Actinopterygii: Perciformes: Nemipteridae) collected from Gökova Bay, Turkey
Otoliths have been proved an appropriate tool to identify fish species, and they have been in use in studies of prey-predator relationships, population dynamics and ichthyo-archaeology. In addition,Expand
Length weight relationship and otolith morphometry of twelve species of sciaenids (Family: Sciaenidae) from Mumbai waters, India
Analysis of morphometric relationships concluded that otolith length, width and mass are good indicators of total length and weight in the species studied. Expand
Relationships between Fish and Otolith Size of the Blackspot Snapper Lutjanus ehrenbergii (Peters, 1869) Collected from the Coast of Muscat City, Sea of Oman
The relationships between otolith measurements and fish body proportions were estimated for blackspot snapper Lutjanus ehrenbergii collected from the Oman’s Sea, at Muscat City and linear function offered the best fit. Expand
Crystalline otoliths in teleosts: Comparisons between hatchery and wild coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) in the Strait of Georgia
A review of the otolith literature demonstrates a significant level of understanding of the structure and function of otoliths, but the cause for crystalline otolith structure remains speculative. Expand
Otolith Biometry-Body Length Relationships in Four Fish Species (Chub, Pikeperch, Crucian carp, and Common Carp)
In cyprinid fishes, sagittal otolith weight was the best predictor of fish length, and the lapillus length had the highest coefficient of determination among lapillus measurements for the same species. Expand
Otolith size-total length relationship in spiny eel, Mastacembelus mastacembelus (Banks & Solander, 1794) inhabiting in Karakaya Dam Lake (Malatya, Turkey).
There was a stronger and positive linear relationship between the otolith size (length, width and weight) and total lengths. Expand
The Age Determination of Black Pomfret (Parastromateus niger), based on Otolith Cross Sections in Iranian Coast of Oman Sea
The relationship between otolith size and the size and age of the fish showed that the Otolith size has a strong and direct correlation with the age, total length and weight of the Fish. Expand
Sagittal otolith morphology and biometric relationships of three snakehead species from the upper Brahmaputra Basin, India
North-east India is blessed with diverse aquatic habitats which harbours a rich repository of ichthyofaunal resource including Channid species (Vishwanath and Geetakumari, 2009). The channids, alsoExpand


Radiometric age validation of the yelloweye rockfish (Sebastes ruberrimus) from southeastern Alaska
etsilaunk, . M.l Abstract. The yelloweye rockfish (Sebastes ruberrimus), a dominant component of an important deep-water rockfish fishery of the Gulf of Alaska, is thought to be long-lived with anExpand
Age determination and validation studies of marine fishes: do deep-dwellers live longer?
The analysis of scorpaenids indicates that longevity increases exponentially with maximum depth of occurrence, and radiometric age validation results are presented for four species of Scorpaenid fishes. Expand
Maximum Ages of Groundfishes in Waters off Alaska and British Columbia and Considerations of Age Determination
The longevity in some groundfish species in the eastern North Pacific Ocean and Bering Sea is remark­ able. Maximum ages of some species are relatively young: walleye pollock and lingcod are 28 andExpand
Length-at-age analysis : can you get what you see ?
Observations at a single point in time of length-at-age (LAA) for a long-lived rockfish (Sebastes alutus) show that old fish are shorter than intermediate-aged fish. Fitting of a von Bertalanffy gr...
