Abstract

Attempts to bridge the gap between simple age<>9d\length regressions and more sophisticated experiment-based models by incorporating a temperature term as a function of absolute growth rate. Growth is assumed to be logistic, with temperature influencing growth rate parabolically on a daily basis. The integrated form of the model provides an estimate of length-at-age of the larva. When fitted to a variety of independent cod and haddock data sets collected in the Gulf of Maine, the model performed with minimal bias despite the absence of a food availability term. -from Authors
