Since 1987, ICLARM, in collaboration with the Malawi Department of Fisheries and the University of Malawi ("the program") have been developing appropriate technologies and farmer participatory approaches to assist smallholder farmers in incorporating aquaculture into the traditional maize-based farming systems in Malawi. Integration of aquaculture and agriculture systems can improve smallholder yields by increasing whole farm efficiencies.
The parameters a and b of length-weight relationship of the form W = aLˆb were computed for 122 species from graphs presented in R.van der Elst's "Guide to the Common Sea Fishes of Southern Africa".
This contribution presents von Bertalanffy growth parameter estimates for 28 species of marine fishes derived from growth curves in R. van der Elst's "Guide to the Common Sea Fishes of Southern Africa".
