Facts

  • TLt = 318.4 (1-exp (-0.149 (t-0.031))) TLt: total length (cm) at age t(days); GI = (GW/TL^3) 10000; BW = 3.00 10-5 TL^3.11 (R2=0.959, captive) or BW = 7.64 10-5 TL2.90 (R2=0.987, wild) fro TL < 200 cm; BW increases steeper with TL for TL > 200 cm (probaly due to reprod); spawning late August to late September, multiople spawners; females are bigger than males. (ref: Naka2008)

Discussion

  • Wiki: Monterey Bay Aquarium increased in weight from 26 to 399 kg and reached a height of nearly 1.8 m in 454 days (PopeHays2010)
