Length-weight, length-length relationships and condition factor of Gagata rhodobarbus Bhakat & Sinha, 2019 (Siluriformes, Sisoridae)


Author(s): Somnath Bhakat, Arup Kumar Sinha and Pradip De

Abstract: This study describes the length-weight (LWR), length-length (LLR) relationships and condition factor for a small sisorid catfish, Gagata rhodobarbus Bhakat & Sinha, 2019 collected from Mayurakhshi river of the Gangetic river system. A total of 23 specimens were caught by traditional fishing gears from July 2017 to June 2018. Total length (TL), standard length (SL), fork length (FL), head length (HL), and snout length for each specimen were measured by dial caliper and body weight (BW) was taken by a digital balance. The ‘b’ value of the LWR indicates positive allometric growth (b = 3.06). The results further indicated that the LLRs were highly correlated (r2>8158, P< 0.0001). Both the condition factor (K) and relative condition factor (Kn) of G. rhodobarbus indicate that the fish is in good condition (K = 0.627 and Kn = 1.003). This study presented the first reference on LWR, LLR, K and Kn for G. rhodobarbus in and from India.
