Abstract

Spot from the York and Elizabeth Rivers were taken in 1983, 1984, and 1985. The length to weight ratio was used to find the equation for Condition Index (K). Condition Indices for the two populations were found and plotted against temperature. Regression lines were plotted for each group. From 6 to 19 degrees, the Condition Index of the two populations rises at similar rates. From 19 degrees on, the Elizabeth River Condition Index rises steadily while the York K drops down to approach the levels of winter.
