FORK LENGTH-TOTAL LENGTH COMPARISON

Fork-length total-length comparison

Figure 1. Portrayal of measurements used in this study.

Fork length (FL) is measured from the tip of the snout to the fork of the tail. Total length (TL) is defined as the distance from the snout to a point on the horizontal axis intersecting a perpendicular line extending downward from the tip of the upper caudal lobe to form a right angle.
