Abstract

We developed complimentary analytical tools for examining the quality of marine ecosystems and the growth rate potential (GRP) of fish. Using acoustic data analysis and RNA/DNA ratios, we examined prey availability, historic growth rates and recent fish growth. A software package was designed to analyze the backscatter values of three frequencies: 12 kHz, 38 kHz, and 120 kHz. This report develops a set of guidelines for the proper collection of tissue samples from the field.
