The use of length-structured methods for the assessment of fish stocks is reviewed in relation to the present status of tropical fisheries science. It is concluded that these methods, which emerged largely as a result of the development of sophisticated, yet relatively cheap, programmable calculators and microcomputers, will enable significant advances to be made in assessment of tropical stocks.
An annotated list of 188 species of fishes recorded from San Miguel Bay, Philippines is presented. Of these, 48% are euryhaline marine species. The most abundant fishes belong to marine species whose representatives are known to seek brackish waters, especially when young. Such fish fauna characterizes San Miguel Bay as an estuary. A brief discussion follows of the distribution with regard to salinity of the Philippine fish fauna as a whole.
