INSTANTANEOUS GROWTH RATE

Definition

A measure of the daily weight increase. The instantaneous growth rate (g) is determined from a sample of fish over a short period of time and calculated by the following equation: g= [Ln (Wt) - Ln (W0)]/(t1 - t0), where Wt is the weight of the fish after t1 days and W0 is the initial weight.
