Answer: 

L50 is the length at which 50% of the females of a particular species have reached reproductive size; essentially meaning that once a fish has reached it's L50 size it most likely has had a chance to spawn (i.e. make babies). As such, it would also be true to say that a fish caught below its L50 size would most likely not have had a chance to reproduce. Only catching fish that have grow to L50 size is one way to help ensure more fish on our reefs
