Length-weight relationships of mola carplet Amblypharyngodon mola (Hamilton) (Cypriniformes: Cyprinidae) from wetlands of Assam, India


Author(s): Golapi Devi and Mrinal Kumar Das

Abstract: The present study describes the length weight relationships (LWR) of Mola carplet, Amblypharyngodon mola in selected wetlands of Assam, India from March, 2015 to Sept, 2016. A total of 440 specimens ranging from 4.1 to 9.0 cm (average 6.1 cm with SEM 0.195) total length (TL) and 0.98 to 8.25 g total weight (TW) (Average 3.3 g with SEM 0.285) were collected. The length-weight relationship of the fish suggested negative allometric growth. The regression models obtained was log W = 2.865 X – 1.785 log L, R2 = 0.964 for female and logW = 2.381 X -1.403 log L, R2 = 0.954 for male. Results for length weight relationships (R2 > 0.9) P<0.001 indicate that these are highly corrected and highly significant. Amblypharyngodon mola, a commercially important small indigenous fish species (SIF) which have high nutritional value. Length–weight relationships of A. mola from wild populations had not yet been studied.
