The scalloped hammerhead, Sphryna lewini (Griffith & Smith, 1834), is a globally exploited species of shark. In order to gain insight into the life history of this species in the USA waters, age and growth was examined from specimens (n = 307) captured from the north-west Atlantic Ocean and from the Gulf of Mexico. The von Bertalanffy growth model resulted in growth parameters of L ∞ = 214.8 cm fork length (FL), k = 0.13 year −1 , t 0 = −1.62 year for males and L ∞ = 233.1 cm FL, k = 0.09 yeardoi:10.1071/mf05195 fatcat:7adbxro655b37kiwuefx223hli
