Author(s): Ogidiaka E., Esenowo I. K.

Abstract: The length-weight relationship and condition factor of Tilapia zilli were analyzed in Warri River, Southern Nigeria. A total of 240 species were recorded. The mean total length and weight were 11.27 cm and 26.57g respectively. The highest (0.248134) and lowest (0.138083) “a” value was recorded in January and February respectively, while the “b” value ranged from 5.037534 January and 7.923723 in May, 2013. The mean condition factor ranged from 2.18 in January and 7.25 in May. The result obtained in this study showed general positive allometric growth.
