All measures and meristic
counts were made on the left side of the body.
Terminology and data for meristic
characters analyzed, based on Duellman and Zweifel (1962), Manning et al.
The results revealed that there were significant differences (P[?]0.05) in most of morphometric character indices and meristic
counts among different wild and cultured Nile tilapia populations tested.
clara specimens, nine meristic
characters were recorded following methods of Williams (1975), including numbers of dorsal fin spines, dorsal fin rays, anal fin rays, left pectoral fin rays, lateral line scales, scales above lateral line, scales below lateral line, transverse scale rows and preoperculomandibular canal pores.

Stock identification studies of haddock in the northwest Atlantic have been conducted since the 1930's, using a variety of approaches including tag-recapture, demographic, recruitment, meristic
, parasitic, and genetic techniques.
A combination of morphometric (wing vein lengths) and meristic
