Morphometry and length-weight relationship of sucker head, Garra gotyla gotyla (Gray, 1830) in hill streams of KashmirAuthor(s):
Ubaid Qayoom, Nimat Syed, Syed Talia MushtaqAbstract: Garra gotyla gotyla
(Sucker head) belongs to endemic icthyofauna of hill streams of Kashmir. 46 specimens of this species were collected from preselected hill streams of Kashmir March 2014 to March 2015 by electro fishing and drag netting. The specimens ranged in size from 10-24 cm in total length. The regression equation for LWR was estimated as Log Wt = 2.869Log L – 1.878. The results indicated that populations of G. gotyla gotyla
in hill streams of Kashmir followed an isometric like growth pattern with ‘b’ values close to cubic law.Pages: 437-439 | 757 Views 23 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
