Description

Raw length-weight data from a variety of populations used for computing the standard weight (Ws) equation for walleye (Sander vitreus vitreus).

Format

A data frame with 34734 observations on the following 3 variables:

popn

A unique numeric identifier for each separate regression.

len

Total length (mm) of fish.

wt

Weight (g) of fish.
