Abstract/Summary

A large sample of otoliths from the mackerel icefish (Champsocephalus gunnari) was measured and weighed and their effectiveness as predictors of fish length and fish mass determined. The two measures, otolith length and otolith mass, provide good predictors of fish length, the latter being slightly better. The same measures did not predict fish total mass as accurately.
