This study presents the findings of the study on the growth parameters, length-weight relationship and condition factor of Lebeo calbasu at the Guptar Ghat of Ghaghra River in Faizabad district of Uttar Pradesh, India and compares the growth pattern of the species in other areas, to suggest ways and means to improve the status of fish population in a defined socio-geographical condition. During the study 193 specimens were examined including 98 females, 90 males and 5 juveniles. The von Berlanffy growth parameters L4 and K for the species were 667 mm and 0.249 per year, respectively. Regression coefficient and correlation coefficient of the fishes were higher in males (3.0561 and 0.9602) than that of females (3.00497 and 0.909). The present study speculated that condition factor value was highly affected by gonadal maturation than feeding.
