The 1st Joint Intercessional Meeting of the Marlin and Swordfish Working Groups of the Interim Scientific Committee for Tuna and Tuna-like Species in the North Pacific Ocean (ISC). August 29 - Septemb
abstract:The relationships between lower jaw fork length (LJFL) and eye fork length (EFL) were described for blue marlin, black marlin, striped marlin, sailfish and swordfish from eastern Taiwan waters. Specimens were sampled from the catches of
Taiwanese offshore and coastal fisheries during June 2004 to July 2005. Our attempt was to provide the relationships between LJFL and EFL for billfishes in Taiwan waters in order for researchers and managers to convert LJFL and EFL metrics for comparison with size data collected in other areas where different metrics were used.
