Length-weight relationships of demersal fishes from the South China Sea Of Malaysia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This study attempts to look into the length weight relationship of demersal fish species collected from the South China Sea of Malaysia. Demersal fish species from wild were captured, total length and weight of each fish were measured, and gonads were observed. Gonadosomatic index and length-weight relationship were calculated. Gonadosomatic index varies between 0.16 (Plectohinchus pictus) and 7.53 (Sphyraena jello). b values of length-weight relationship ranged from 2.423 (Compressiformes) to 3.285 (Fusiformes). This study shown that most of the fishes were not in good condition during their maturity.
