Abstract:
The length-weight relationship and condition factor was investigated from 1000 specimens of Sardinella sindensis caught along the Gwadar waters, Balochistan, Pakistan for 3 years from January 2003 to December 2006. The experimental fish size in total length (TL) ranged from 15 to 25 cm (mean ± SD=17.8±1.50) and the body weight (W) of S.sindensis range from 40 to 75 g (mean ± SD=50.3±11.28). The value of regression co-efficient obtained for the length-weight relationship was 0.6991.This suggests positive allometry growth from the entire specimens sampled. There was no significant statistical difference in the regression co-efficients. The mean value of condition factor computed for all the specimens of Sardinella sindensis was0.87±0.09, indicated that the specimens were moderately healthy.
