Length-Based Methods in Fisheries Research.

"Length-Based Methods in Fisheries Research," edited by D. Pauly and G. R. Morgan has been copublished by the Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research and the International Center for Living Aquatic Resources Management (ICLARM), MC P.O. Box 1501, Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines. The volume constitutes the Proceedings of the International Conference on the Theory and Application of Length-Based Methods for Stock Assessment held 11-16 February 1985 in Mazzara del Vallo, Sicily, Italy.

Included are 22 papers from the conference, along with the reports of three of the four working groups formed during the conference, plus three contributions written immediately thereafter--chairman J. A. Gulland's overview, a review of programs discussed at the conference by the editors of the volume, and a note on some aspects of the problem of length-to-age vs. age-to-length conversion. The contributions review length-based methodologies for stock assessment of fish and aquatic invertebrates with particular reference to their precision and accuracy; review and test computer programs implementing length-based methods; and help identify the specific features of sampling schemes used to obtain length-frequency data for stock assessment. The 468-page hardbound volume includes author, geographic, and species indexes and is available from ICLARM as ICLARM Conference Proceedings 13 or, in the United States, from International Specialized Book Services, P.O. Box 1632, Beaverton, OR 97075 (price not listed .
