**instantaneous rate of growth**— The natural logarithm of the ratio of final weigl1t to initial weight of a fish in a unit of time, usually a year. When applied collectively to all fish of a given age in a stock, the possibility of selective mortality must be considered … Fisheries — dictionary**instantaneous rate of growth**— a measure of the weight increase, the natural logarithm of the ratio of final weight to initial weight of a fish in a unit of time, usually a year. When applied collectively to all fish of a given age in a stock, the possibility of selective … Dictionary of ichthyology**instantaneous rate of surplus production**— Equal to rate of growth plus rate of recruitment less rate of natural mortality all in terms of weight and on an instantaneous basis.
