Can anyone give some guidelines of what a silver perch may weight at varying lengths. Just estimate ranges

http://www.nativefish.asn.au/silver.html shows they can grow to 60cm / 8KG WOW

I think I will keep 1 and see how big it will get over a couple of years.

27-30cm is around 500 grams...I think beyond that, they start to beef up more rather than grow longer

Great idea!

This info will be very useful once people all contribute their data.

Would be good to have a table like this for each of the main AP fish speces. Would really help new people like me determing feed ratios.

Would be really good to get multiple weights for each length so we can average it out. I am happy to put my hand up to graph the data and post the graphs once we get more numbers.

Graphing will help show the slowdown of length but increase of weight if they do beef up near the end of their growth.

I weighed and mesured 30 Perch a few years ago. The condition of the fish varied a bit hence the differences in weights for similar length fish.
Here you go, this should keep you busy for a while!
1. 395gm 29cm
2. 768gm 35.5cm
3. 238gm 26cm
4. 445gm 32cm
5. 673gm 35cm
6. 638gm 33.5cm
7. 1039gm 38.cm
8. 553gm 34.5cm
9. 698gm 35cm
10. 643gm 34cm
11. 1061gm 36cm
12. 635gm 37cm
13. 598gm 33cm
14. 859gm 37.5cm
15. 635gm 35cm
16. 471gm 31cm
17. 795gm 36cm
18. 638gm 33cm
19. 431gm 34cm
20. 435gm 34cm
21. 780gm 35cm
22. 517gm 33cm
23. 533gm 33.5cm
24. 983gm 39.5cm
25. 377gm 31cm
26. 740gm 37cm
27. 754gm 35.5cm
28. 275gm 27cm
29. 418gm 32cm
30. 580gm 37cm
Iv got a few babys in a tank at the moment so I will get some lengths weights of those. I'm not going to weigh my biguns as I end up breaking a net everytime I try and catch one!!

As a graph...

edit - added Tim's data, took out Jaymie's estimate, which is now looking a bit optimistic!
also added a cubic regression, which looks better than the exponential one. Cubic makes sense if length is directly proportional to other dimensions, ie double the length, times the volume/weight by 8.

SG, I can send you the spreadsheet by PM if you want, or I'll try to keep up with the thread and add more data to it as we go.

I'm really interested in this, I googlebutted recently but couldn't find any published results for silver perch length v weight (there's a technical term but I can't remember). Once again team BYAP forum to the rescue.

We need more data though...a bit of forum trawling is in order...I'm sure there are heaps of posts around where people have put this info up.
