The approximate weight of a fish in pounds can be calculated by measuring the length in inches (tip of the nose to the fork of the tail) and girth (around the fish in front of the pectoral fin).
To do the calculation, you:
- square the girth measurement;
- multiply it by length measurement;
- divide by 800.
