Comparative length weight relationship and condition factor in Alepes kleinii (Bloch 1793) along Mumbai and Goa coast of India


Author(s): Sharvari N Kudtarkar, Mrinalini C Sathe and AK Jaiswar

Abstract: The length weight relationships and condition factors of the two populations of Alepes kleinii (Bloch 1793) along Mumbai and Goa Coasts were calculated out for males and females, separately. The length weight relationship (LWR) was established as Log W= -2.799 + 2.037 Log L for females, Log W= -1.245+1.313 Log L for males, and Log W= -2.103+ 1.721 Log L for pooled data for population of Mumbai Coast. Similarly, Log W= -2.712 + 2.001 Log L for females, Log W= -1.100 + 1.264 Log L for males and Log W= - 1.922 + 1.643 Log L for pooled data for population of Goa Coast. The coefficient of correlation “r” between length and weight was found to be higher in females at Mumbai (0.909) and Goa (0.921) Coast than in males. The values of condition factor “K” was found to be higher in males (2.0609- Mumbai Coast and 2.0962 - Goa Coast) than in females (1.5329 - Mumbai and 1.4879 - Goa Coast). from both the Coast.
