Total lengths ranged from 14,2 to 95,2 cm. Females dominated smaller size-classes and males the larger ones. The species was characterized by protogynous hermaphroditism. The overall ratio of males to females was 1 : 1,45. The reproductive period extended from April to September, spawning peaking in June/July. The total lengths at 50% maturity were 34,7 cm for females and 38,6 cm for males. The length-mass relationship for the whole sample can be described by the parameters a = 0,01014 and b = 3,0812. Fish aged 0–16 years were present in the samples. The parameters of the Von Bertalanffy growth equation were: L ∞ = 101,2 cm, k = 0,149·year−1, and t 0 = −0,111 years. The rates of total mortality Z and natural mortality M were 0,57 and 0,28·year−1 respectively. Rates of fishing mortality F and exploitation E were 0,29 and 0,51·year−1 respectively. The estimated length at first capture (LC 50) was 17,8 cm total length.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/51853||ISSN:||0257-7615||DOI:||10.2989/025776195784156421||Source:||South African Journal of Marine Science [ISSN 0257-7615], v. 16, p. 311-319|
