Abstract

ENGLISH: The purposes of the Convention which established the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission have been discussed in the Commission's Annual Report for 1950-51 (Schaefer, 1952) and in subsequent Annual Reports. One of its functions is to gather and report on biological information for the tunas of the Eastern Tropical Pacific, the yellowfin tuna (Neothunnus macropterus) and skipjack tuna (Katsuwonus pelamis). This report gives the results of a study of the relationships between the length and the weight of individuals of each of these species, derived from samples of fish of commercial sizes captured during the course of regular fishing operations in several areas of the Eastern Tropical Pacific Ocean SPANISH: Los propósitos de la Convención que estableció la Comisión Interamericana del Atún Tropical han sido expuestos en el Informe Anual de dicho organismo correspondiente a 1950-51 (Schaefer, 1952), y en los siguientes informes anuales. Una de sus funciones es la de recoger información biológica sobre los atunes del Pacífico Oriental Tropical, es decir, el aleta amarilla (Neothunnus macropterus) y el barrilete (Katsuwonus pelamis) y darla a conocer a las partes interesadas. El presente trabajo informativo proporciona los resultados de un estudio de las relaciones entre la longitud y el peso tomados en individuos de cada una de estas especies, mediante muestreo en pescados de tamaños comerciales capturados en el curso de operaciones regulares de pesca, en diversas área del Océano Pacífico Oriental Tropical.
