Biometric studies of two gobids Boleophthalmus boddarti (Pallas, 1770) and Boleophthalmus dussumieri (Valenciennes, 1837) from Mumbai coast, India

Abstract: In the present study, various morphometric and meristic characters of Boleophthalmus boddarti (Pallas, 1770) and B. dussumieri (Valenciennes, 1837), commercially and ecologically important gobids, is studied. Significantly high values of correlation coefficient were estimated for various compared characters. Similarly, the regression coefficient that determines the growth rate of a species also varied. The length-weight relationship indicates allometric relationship and high degree of homogeneity; whereas negative relationship is attributed to slender longer body growth within the populations. Both the species showed positive as well as negative allometric growth for different morphometric characters. The values of Fulton's condition factor ‛K', indicate poor condition of the fishes but as the fish grows the ‛K' value increases thereby indicating better conditions with increasing adaptability of the environment by these fishes.
