    Information on the biology and population structure of any species is a prerequisite for developing management and conservation strategies. Morphometric characters of fish are the measurable characters common to all fishes. Some arbitrarily selected points on a fish body known as landmarks help the individual fish shape to be analyzed. A landmark is a point of correspondence on an object that matches between and within populations. Advanced techniques for morphometric analysis offers more efficient and powerful tools in identify differences between fish populations, detecting differences among groups and to differentiate between species of similar shape. Morphometric methods such as univariate comparisons, bivariate analyses of relative growth pattern and a series of multivariate methods have been developed and applied to discriminate stocks. The use of multivariate techniques such as.. Read More»
