Author(s): Mrinal Kumar Das and Ranjana Bhaskar

Abstract: Length-weight relationships for five finfish fish species belonging to five different families were estimated collected from Chennai coast, Tamil Nadu, India.The estimated allometric parameter ‘b’ values ranged from 2.78 (Nemipterus randalli Russel, 1986) to 3.32 (Trachinocephalus myops (Forster, 1801) which is within the normal range and r2 values ranged from 0.952 (Nemipterus randalli) to 0.980 (Trachinocephalus myops). All the LWRs were highly significant, with p < .005. There were no prior LWRs data in FishBase from India regarding three of these species (Stolephorus indicus, Trachinocephalus myops and Upeneus tragula).
