In spite of the abundance and commercial importance of these two species, there is little published weight-length data for the gafftopsail catfish Bagre marinus and hardhead catfish Ariopsis felis. For this study 84 catfish were caught hook and line from the Calcasieu Estuary in Southwest Louisiana near the Gulf of Mexico and estuaries and near shore waters close to bayou Lafourche.
