This screen details a length-weight relationship formula taken from for the species shown (usually) or its genus or family.

Length-weight relationships are used to convert a fish length to a weight and take the form: weight = a * lengthb. The length-weight relationship formulae obtained from give values for a and b. Length-weight relationships are expressed for a specific length type (e.g. fork length, total length).
