understanding fundamental principles about fish growth. Fulton’s condition factor is most often attributed with the citation Fulton (1911) The Sovereignty of the Sea. This citation is incorrect as it has no reference to “condition” in fish; rather, it is a history of how parts of maritime law came in to being, including the 3-mile zones around each country’s shore line. If authors over the years had included the full title of the book (The Sovereignty of the Sea: An Historical Account of the… 
Development and Evaluation of Condition Indices for the Lake Whitefish
TLDR
Four standard weight equations using the regression length percentile (RLP) method for lake whitefish showed less length-related bias and more closely matched empirical quartiles of l...
Recruitment dynamics of the Gulf of Riga herring stock: density-dependent and environmental effects
TLDR
The estimated decline in the average annual consump- tion rate per individual and changes observed in the zooplankton community suggest that density-dependent effects may have increased since the 1970s, and recruitment appears to be more influenced by environmental conditions than by spawning-stock biomass.
Population Dynamics of the Annular Seabream Diplodus annularis (Linnaeus, 1978) from the Maltese Islands Reveals a New Maximum Age Record
Age, growth, length-weight relationship (LWR), condition factor (K) and relative condition factor (Kn) were investigated for the annular seabream Diplodus annularis collected from noncommercial
A life-history account of Macrobrachium spinipes (Schenkel, 1902) (Cherabin) in a large tropical Australian River
Rivers in tropical Australia are largely pristine, and ecosystem connectivity is intact, but water resources in northern Australia are under increasing development pressure. A better understanding of
Evaluating drivers of spatiotemporal individual condition of a bottom-associated marine fish
A fish’s body condition is described by its weight given its length and is often positively associated with fitness. Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) in the south-eastern Baltic Sea has experienced a
Spatial variability in post-larval traits of Sicyopterus lagocephalus Pallas 1770 around Reunion Island
The spatial variability of S. lagocephalus post-larval traits, in February 2015, was investigated through comparison of pelagic larval duration (PLD), standard length (SL), body mass (BM) and
The link between migration, the reproductive cycle and condition of Sardinella aurita off Mauritania, north-west Africa
TLDR
The annual migration pattern of round sardinella Sardinella aurita up and down the north-western African coast was shown to be associated with spawning activity and a distinct seasonality in fish condition, based on monthly sampling from commercial catches.
Empirical analyses of the length, weight, and condition of adult Atlantic salmon on return to the Scottish coast between 1963 and 2006
Sea age, size, and condition of adult Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) are prime determinants of individual, and hence population, productivity. To elucidate potential mechanisms, 151 000 records of
Biological Reference Points for the Nutritional Status of Chesapeake Bay Striped Bass
TLDR
Five studies in which multiple indicators of nutritional status were applied to Striped Bass Morone saxatilis of different age-classes, geographical origins, and environments (cultured and wild) suggest that weight-at-length indices are less sensitive than proximate analyzes.
Length-Weight Relationship and Fulton’s Condition Factor of Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)
Length-weight relationship and condition factor are an important, easy and fast tool for determination of the fish condition. These parameters are also important as early warning for management
