.eyefork length (= 84 to 88.7% of body length).

"The average size of the individuals caught by longlines is unimodal, about 140 to 240 cm body length, while it is bimodal in those caught by driftnets and setnets, about 50 to 110 cm and 140 to 240 cm body length, respectively."

Overall average size is 50-240 cm body length.
Eyefork length = 84-88.7% body length = 42-212.88 cm.More info.FAO Species Fact Sheet webpageMore infoMore info.

This screen gives details for an individual reference obtained in estimating a mean weight for this species.

The information obtained from this reference to derive an estimated mean weight is in the *** fish size quote *** and/or *** Explanatory notes *** column. Note that you may need to search the document using key words in the '*** Fish Size Quote ***' or *** Explanatory notes *** column to find the relevant fish size data. To view the reference document itself (if available online): scroll right and click on 'More info' in the 'Link to reference' column, if available.

Where the information obtained from the reference is a fish length, the calculations performed to obtain a weight may be viewed by clicking on 'More info' in the 'Length-weight calculations' column.
