  • Description:
    "Equations for converting tail length to total length and tail weight to total weight and vice versa were obtained for white, brown and pink shrimp (Penaeus setiferus, Penaeus aztecus and Penaeus duorarum, respectively), using linear regression analyses. This model, with no variable transformations, produced the best fits to the data i.e. explained the greatest variation in the dependent variable (Y) by variation in the independent variable(X). The available data consisted of measurements taken on shrimp samples obtained during shrimp tagging studies conducted by SEFC, Galveston Laboratory during 1979 and the latter part of 1978"--Page 1, paragraph 1.
