Studies on length-weight relationship of Mugil cephalus (Linnaeus, 1758), (Family: Mugilidae) Chennai coast of Tamil Nadu


Author(s): Vaitheeswaran T, Malathi S and S. Felix

Abstract: Length-Weight relationship was studied in Mugil cephalus collected from Kovalam, Southeast coast of India. The slope value (b) estimated for Mugil cephalus of both sexes was found to be 1.0368. The regression equations calculated for female was Log W = -0.7292 + 1.0368 Log L. The correlations coefficient was found to be significant (P<0.01). The significant difference between sexes of the species ‘F’ value was at 1% level. The slope value was compared here could be very useful for comparison with the brackishwater species in other geographical locations.
