In this review we collected data on the length at maturity (Lm) and maximum reported total length (Lmax) of 565 Mediterranean marine fish stocks, representing 150 species, 68 families, 24 orders and 3 classes. Overall, Lm ranged from 2 cm, for the males of the toothcarp Aphanius fasciatus, to 350 cm, for the females of the bluntnose sixgill shark Hexanchus griseus. Lm was positively linearly related with Lmax for Actinopterygii (logLm = −0.123 + 0.92 × logLmax; r 2 = 0.87, n = 471, P < 0.001… CONTINUE READING
