Abstract

Problems in estimation of the instantaneous rate of natural mortality in exploited, fish populations have been mentioned and improved estimators of the natural mortality rate (M) are empirically derived as functions of the von Bertalanffy growth parameter K. Alternative methods are also suggested.
