Ragonese, S. and Bertolino, F. (1994) Estimating the girth of fish by applying an elliptic model. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 17(1), pp. 41-44.
A new method for estimating the maximum girth of roundfish is proposed as illustrated; this is based on an elliptic approximation of the cross sections of the fish body. Results derived from a small sample horse mackerel, Trachurus trachurus, suggest that maximum girth estimates based on the elliptic model are more precise than the values estimated by applying a conventional method.
