Craig, P.C. (1999) The von Bertalanffy growth curve: when a good fit is not good enough. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 22(4), pp. 28-29.
The von Bertalanffy growth function is used for length based analysis of growth and mortality patterns for management of fisheries. However, certain fish have growth patterns that the VBGF may not be able to describe adequately.e.g. the Acanthurus lineatus in Samoa. In such cases a two phase VBGF may be a useful approach.
