S.D. Ahirrao

Abstract

The length-weight relationship is one of the standard method yielding authentic biological information. It provides a means from calculating weight from the length. It determine the mathematical relationship between the two variables and to calculate the variation from the expected weight for length of the individuals or groups of fishes (Le cren I 951). The variation in growth rate is more frequent in fishes due to variation in season multiple spawning and food composition. The mostacembclus armatus is very common in all fresh watering of Marathwada and it is a very popular fish among the consumers of this area. In the present investigation the length-weight relationship of male and female M. ormatus has been undertaken by observation of total 503 fishes in which 250 were male 253 were female.
