Abstract:
The age of the green jack Caranx caballus by the analysis of size frequencies in five age groups and with that of otoliths in four age groups is determined. The growth parameters of von Bertalanffy obtained with the frequency analysis were Loo = 55.38 cm, Woo = 3 841.65 g, k = 0.34, to = -0.0084 and A0.95 = 9 years. The results of the otolith lectures were Loo = 52.02 cm, Woo = 3 205.60 g, k = 0.362, to = -0.085 and A0.95 = 8 years. The growth parameters were compared with those of other species of the same genus. Data were also obtained for the gonadosomatic index which showed their maximum values during the months of June and October, which coincides with the season wherein data of the gastric repletion index increases and the values of the hepatosomatic index diminishes. The data obtained for the condition factor show their largest fluctuations during the period between January and August.
