The general von Bertalanffy growth function: possible use in the Beverton and Holt model


  • Moreau, J.


Using the concept of generalized Von Bertalanffy growth formula developed by Pauly and Gaschâ ¿tz, we tried to integrate the basic equation of Beverton and Holt and to check on changes in the quantitative evaluation of yield/recruit. An example is given concerning a tropical fresh water fish population.
