Description: 

Estimated total length of goby in centimeters. Total length is sometimes given as a range instead of a single number. This was done for larger groups of gobies for which it would be impractical to estimate the size of every individual. Assume that the frequency distribution (categorized into 0.5 cm size-bins) is normal, with the specified minimum and maximum total lengths for each group of gobies. (Originally named 'Estimated TL').
