Growth, mortality and recruitment of short-wing flying fish Oxyphorhampus micropterus in Bohol Sea, Philippines


  • Yacapin, N.C.


The von Bertalanffy growth parameters (L8 and K) were estimated, based on length-frequency data from the small scale fishery, and the Compleat ELEFAN software, for short wing flying fish Oxyphorhampus micropterus (Hemiramphidae) in the Bohol Sea, central Philippines. Related estimates (Z, M, F, mean length at first capture) are also presented. Also, it is shown that the annual recruitment to this stock is strongly bimodal.
