Abstract
    The age and growth of the turbot and the brill have been determined with otoliths (sagitta). On these otoliths, the formation of the hyaline zone can be seen in the summer and an opaque zone in the winter. In both species, the two sexes have identical length/weight relationships. By contrast, there are wide divergences in the age/length and age/weight relationships. At the same age in both species, females are always longer and heavier than males.
