Age and growth of the pleuronectid flounder limanda yokohamae in tokyo bay japan



Age and growth of the pleuronectid flounder limanda yokohamae in tokyo bay japan



Nippon Suisan Gakkaishi 53(5): 711-716



Age and growth of the pleuronectid flounder Limanda yokohamae in Tokyo Bay were studied by otolith reading of 155 fish. Examination of the outer margins of the otoliths showed that the hyaline zone as annulus was formed once a year and that its formation was completed at the end of the spawning season (February to April). Growth of the fish was expressed by the von Bertalanffy's equation as Lt = 260.4 [1 -exp { -0.510 (t - 0.054)}] for males and Lt = 363.1[1 - exp { -0.311(t-0.285)}] for females, where Lt is standard length in mm and t is age in years. It was found that the growth of males and females differs, with the females showing a higher growth than the males at each estimated age. Growth in body weight was also examined. Most of the fish examined were found to be not more than three years old, although the oldest fish were 5 years old for males and 6 years old for females.
