Age Determination of Mugil curema Valenciennes, 1836 (Pisces: Mugilidae) in the Cuyutlan Lagoon, Colima, Mexico
Espino-Barr Elaine, Cabral-Solis Esther Guadalupe and Gallardo-Cabello

Abstract:
This study deals with the age determination in scales of Mugil curema. Reading the scales allowed the identification of six age groups. The width of the growth rings decreases as the age increases. The growth of the scales is proportional to the fish growth. The period of highest growth rate takes place during the first months of life i.e. 106.6 mm. During the first year M. curema grows 46.6 and 44.3 mm the second year; 33.8 the third year; 26.9 the fourth and 17.8 mm the fifth year.
