Through loss of scales), possibly leading to the very low long-term return rate observed. Length-at-maturity as reported in FishBase (Froese and Pauly, 2006) is 767 mm, but this estimate was also derived from studies of M. atlanticus, which grows to 2222 mm CFL (Froese and Pauly, 2006). Pusey et al. (2004) suggest that M. cyprinoides probably achieves sexual maturity in the second year of life when lengths in excess of 300 mm are attained. In another investigation, Coates (1987) found no mature fish in surveys in the Sepik River, Papua New Guinea, and suggested that fish above 400 mm in length return permanently to coastal waters to mature and breed.
