Abstract
    Growth in eel populations is not centered around the mean. The model described here is designed to take the growth rate variability into account by classifying the population, step by step in time, into size boxes on which grading and grouping occurs. By selecting options, this model allows the fit to other growth conditions and therefore can be adapted to other species. This growth model is the backbone of a predictive model for aquaculture, built up by adding allometric functions related to basic physiological properties.
