Otolith microstructure was used to determine the age and evaluate the growth of juvenile white mullet (Mugil curema) during their residence in the coastal lagoon El Conchalito, B.C.S., Mexico, from May 1997 to May 1998.

The juveniles studied were between 16 and 42 mm standard length (SL) and from 22 to 109 days old.
The Gompertz growth model appropriately described the relationship between age and SL (r2 = 0.94).
The average growth rate was 0.29 mm d-1 between 20 and 110 days of age, which was l...
