Abstract
    Length–weight relationships (LWRs) of 139 coral reef andpelagic fish species (representing 34 fish families) were calculatedbased on 3806 individuals measured at local fish marketsnear the Davao Gulf in the southern Philippines duringweekly visits between March 2009 and July 2011, as well asin June 2012. Fishes were caught with a variety of fishingmethods, corroborated by abrasions and injuries. Fortysevenof 139 LWRs were firstly reported and new to science.The mean slope b of the LWRs was 3.035, indicating thatthe majority of studied species followed isometric growth.Standard length – total length relationships were calculatedfor all measured fish species. Additionally, standard length –fork length relationships are presented for 108 species. Moreover,fifteen new records of maximum fish length and weightare reported.
