Fork Length vs Total Length

Fork Length (FL) is the length of a fish measured from the most anterior part of the head to the deepest point of the notch in the tail fin.

Total length (TL) is the length of a fish measured from the tip of the snout to the tip of the longer lobe of the caudal fin, usually measured with the lobes compressed along the midline. It is a straight-line measure, not measured over the curve of the body.
