A minimal stochastic generalization of a deterministic open-ended logistic growth model is proposed for efficiently describing the biological growth of individual organisms under natural environment. The model is a system of stochastic differential equations. Its unique solvability in a strong sense is proven, and the behaviour of the solution is analysed. The presented model is then applied to the migratory fish Plecoglossus altivelis altivelis (P. altivelis, Ayu) having a one-year life history based on the data sets collected in 2017 and 2018.
