Length- Weight relationship and relative condition factor of Peacock eel (Macrognathus aral (Bloch and Schneider, 1801) from Dora Wetland of AssamAuthor(s):
Snigdha Chakraborty and MM GoswamiAbstract: Macrognathus aral
(Bloch and Schneider, 1801) commonly known as peacock eel belongs to the family Mastacembelidae. The present study describes the length-weight relationship of the fish collected from Dora Beel. A total of 94 specimens were investigated in the study. The fishes were separated into male and female to calculate length- weight relationship of each individual of the species. The growth performance in both male & female are found high since the correlation co-efficient ‘r’ exhibits high degree of correlation between the length-weight relationships. The correlation co-efficient ‘r’ in Macrognathus aral
is closer to 1.0. The length-weight relationship showed a positive allometric growth in both sexes of this species.Pages: 548-551 | 1492 Views 127 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
