Özet

The aim of this study is to compare Bayesian and Classical estimation for describing the growth curves of Brushtooth Lizardfish (Saurida lessepsianus Russell, Golani & Tikochinski 2015). Classical nonlinear regression method and Bayesian estimation method were used to obtain the estimation of the components of the von Bertalanffy growth model. The estimated parameters of the von Bertalanffy equation via two methods showed that Bayesian estimation is much better than Classical nonlinear regression in estimating growth parameters and reducing variation of growth model parameters.
