In Poland, analyses of the methods of obtaining morphometric equations whichdetermine the dependencies among fish body parameters, are presented. Anew method of obtaining these equations is also proposed in which thegeometric similarity of fish is used and which depends on the search forinvariants of their similarity. The results of analyses confirm that the newmethod, which is much more effective, is at least as precise as the previouslyapplied estimation of equations to describe relationships between particularlinear parameters of fish body and fish length.
