In most countries, fishing regulations limit the minimum size of individual fish that can be caught to allow fish to achieve maturation so their populations can be replenished. This type of regulation assumes that larger fish are not relatively more valuable to population replenishment than smaller fish. Fish biologists, however, have occasionally found that in some species larger females reproduce disproportionately more eggs than smaller ones.
