Abstract: Length-weight relationships (LWRs) and length-length relationships (LLRs) of Apocryptes bato were studied in the Payra River, southern Bangladesh. Monthly samples were collected from the small-scale fishers of set bag net fishery in the Payra River during May 2016 to April 2017. All specimens were separated on the basis of sex and standard length (SL), total length (TL), anal length (AL) and body weight (BW) were measured. The allometric coefficient ‘b’ of the LWRs indicated negative allometric growth in males, females and unsexed. The allometric coefficient ‘b’ of the LLRs between SL vs. TL indicated positive allometric growth, while TL vs. AL and SL vs. AL indicated negative allometric growth in males, females and unsexed individuals respectively. These results will be useful for fishery managers to impose adequate regulations for sustainable fishery management not only in the Payra River of but also in the surrounding water bodies of Bangladesh.
