The presently reported study provides length–weight relations of 14 fish species from mangrove swamps of La Paz Bay, Baja California Sur, México: Diapterus brevirostris (Sauvage, 1879); Eucinostomus currani Zahuranec, 1980; Eucinostomus dowii (Gill, 1863); Eucinostomus entomelas Zahuranec, 1980; Eucinostomus gracilis (Gill, 1862); Ctenogobius sagittula (Günther, 1862); Haemulopsis nitidus (Steindachner, 1869); Pomadasys bayanus Jordan et Evermann, 1898; Hyporhamphus naos Banford et Collette, 2001; Lutjanus argentiventris (Peters, 1869); Lutjanus novemfasciatus Gill, 1862; Mugil curema Valenciennes, 1836; Paralabrax maculatofasciatus (Steindachner, 1868); Sphoeroides annulatus (Jenyns, 1842). Fish were caught at 8 locations within July 2010–September 2011. Specimens were collected monthly using beach seines (mesh size 2.0 cm), measured with a digital calliper, and weighed with a digital balance to determine the standard length and weight, respectively. Values of b ranged from 2.21 to 3.45.
