Length-weight relationships and condition factors of five cyprinidae species (Subfamily-Barbinae) from three diverse rivers of Uttar Pradesh, India


Author(s): Deepmala Gupta and Madhu Tripathi

Abstract: This study describes the patterns of length-weight relationship and condition factor of five important small indigenous fish species (SIS) belonging to subfamily Barbinae viz. Systomus sarana, Puntius chola, Puntius sophore, Pethia ticto, and Pethia conchonious collected from three geographically isolated rivers (Ganga, Gomti and Sai) of Uttar Pradesh, India. A total of 977 individuals of different sizes were collected. Length-weight relationships (LWRs) were found highly correlated (r2 >0.992; P<0.001) in species P. chola and S. sarana of Gomti. The slope (b) of the functional regression between length and weight values varied from 2.249 to 3.231(mean b = 2.801±0.283). The results indicated that most of the population has shown negative allometric pattern (b<3) of growth. Whereas, the average values of condition factor (K) showed that studied species in these three rivers were in good condition. This study also provided first baseline data related to length-weight relationship and condition factor for five selected species of Sai river, Raibarely, Uttar Pradesh.
