Abstract

The objectives of this study were to describe the length-length relationship (LLR), length-weight relationship (LWR) and condition factor of four important freshwater fish species Esomus danricus, Amblypharyngodon mola, Pethia ticto and Glossogobius giuris, collected from different fish market of Gomastapur subdistrict, Chapai Nawabganj, Bangladesh from December 2009 to November 2010. Relationship equations among different body length parameters of each species were found highly significant (p < 0.01). LWRs were obtained as TW = 0.008 TL3.01, 0.025 TL3.03, 0.043 TL2.93 and 0.021 TL2.91 for E. danricus, A. mola, P. ticto and G. giuris respectively. The study period was divided into three major seasons summer (March to June), rainy (July to October) and winter (November to February) for studying the growth and condition of the specimens. The values of the Fulton's and relative condition factors indicated apparent growth variation in different seasons. All the species showed maximum robustness in summer and rainy seasons. The information obtained from this study will be helpful for the fishery managers to implement adequate adaption-centric regulations for sustainable fishery management in the water bodies of Gomastapur as well as the other parts of the country.
