Abstract:

The length weight relationship (LWR) and relative condition factor (Kn) of Myripristis murdjan along the south east coast of India was studied. Four hundred and one fishes of M. murdjan consist of 194 males and 207 females. The relationship for males and females was expressed by Log W= -1.7895+3.0942, Log L (r=0.9529) and Log W = -1.858+3.1723 Log L (r=0.9514). The monthly mean values of Kn was 2.0-3.9 in male and 2.2 -2.3 in female respectively. The r value revealed very good correlation between length and weight. By testing the regression coefficients against the isometric growth value it was found that there was no significant variation between sexes of both the species. Both the species showed isometric growth. The relative condition (Kn) in M. murdjan was studied for the first time. The analyses both size group wise and season wise indicated that the variations in Kn value are related to the maturity cycle and spawning in this species.
