Length-weight relationship of Terapon puta (Cuvier, 1829) from Puducherry waters


Author(s): Nandikeswari R, Sambasivam M

Abstract: The present study investigates the length-weight relationship of Terapon puta from Puducherry (East coast of India). A total of 485 individuals of different sizes were collected from Puducherry landings centre. Length-weight relationships were calculated for all fish samples. The length weight relationship equations are W = 0.1313 L1.9890 ; W = 0.5091 L1.5078 ; W=0.6090 L1.4752 ; W = 0.1332 L2.0543; W = 0.1207 L2.0246; W = 0.0841 L2.2074 for immature male, immature female, matured male, matured female, total male and total female respectively. The growth exponential (b) values were found to be negatively allometric for all the stages.
