No significant estimates of upper bound slope and two significant estimates of lower bound slope that were not statistically different ([F.sub.(1.57)] = 0.015; P [greater than] 0.75) were generated for red hake [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 2E OMITTED].
Only one significant slope estimate was generated for the red hake data set (90th quantile) [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 4E OMITTED].
