Djabali, F. and Mehailia, A. and Koudil, M. and Brahmi, B. (1993) Empirical equations for the estimation of natural mortality in Mediterranean teleosts. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 16(1), pp. 35-37.
Empirical relationships were established linking estimates of the instantaneous rate of natural mortality (M), the von Bertalanffy growth parameters, L sub( infinity ) (or W sub( infinity )) and K, and annual mean water temperature in 56 stocks of Mediterranean teleosts fish. It is suggested that these relationships generate for these fish more reliable estimates of M than the widely-used model of Pauly (1980, J. Cons. CIEM 33(3):175-192), which was based on 175 fish stocks, but included only five stocks from the Mediterranean.
