Growth increment data derived from tagging experiments on Pacific bonito (Sarda chiliensis) used to illustrate Francis's maximum likelihood method estimation of growth and growth variability (1988).
A data frame with 138 observations on the following 4 variables.
a numeric vector describing the release date
a numeric vector describing the recovery date
a numeric vector describing the length at release in cenitmeters
a numeric vector describing the length at recapture in centimeters
Note that Francis (1988) has discarded several records from the original dataset collected by Campbell et al. (1975).
