Frota, L.O. and Costa, P.A.S. and Braga, A.C. (2004) Length-weight relationships of marine fishes from the central Brazilian coast. Naga, Worldfish Center Quarterly, 27(1-2), pp. 20-26.
Parameters of the length-weight relationship are presented for 85 fish species from the marine and estuarine regions of the central Brazilian coast (latitude 13° to 23° S). Three different methods were used. A non-linear iterative process using the quasi-Newton algorithm yielded a better fit for all data sets analyzed. The length-weight allometry coefficient b estimated from standard length data tended to be lower than from total length data. The difference between these estimates was significant for some species.
