Carapace length-weight and Carapace width-weight relationship and condition factor of intertidal crabs from Maharashtra, IndiaAuthor(s):
Mayura Khot and AK JaiswarAbstract:
length-weight and carapace width-weight relationship of 10 species of crabs collected from intertidal region of Maharashtra was studied. A significant positive correlation was found between carapace length-weight and carapace width-weight for all species. The regression coefficient (b) indicated positive allometry. The condition factor (K) showed significant variation among the species. The findings of the study will be useful in estimation of stocks, planning for conservation strategies and selection of species for culture.Pages: 48-51 | 386 Views 36 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
