Weight-length relationships of 3 demersal fish species from Lebanese marine waters, eastern Mediterranean

Abstract : Weight‐length relationships (WLRs) were estimated for 3 demersal species, from the Lebanese marine waters, eastern Mediterranean, namely Coelorinchus caelorhincus (Risso, 1810), Scorpaena elongata Cadenat, 1943 and Stephanolepsis diaspros Fraser‐Brunner, 1940. The specimens were collected using trammel and gill nets from June 2012 to October 2014. The values of parameter b of the WLRs W = aLb ranged from 2.922 to 3.708. Pronounced sexual dimorphism in WLR was observed for S. diaspros and none showed a WLR‐based geographical pattern of distribution. WLRs reported in this study should be applied only within the observed length ranges.
