Key words: Lates calcalifer, condition factor, length-weight relationship, fish culture.



ABSTRACT: The paper deals with the length-weight relationship and condition factor of Lates calcalifer collected from west Godavari and Krishna districts of Andhra Pradesh during 2009-2011. The length of the sampled specimens of Lates calcarifer varied from 11 cm to 70 cm. The total length ranged between 14 cm and 64 cm with a mean varies from 16.58 to 64, and weight ranged between 280g and 3000 g and corresponding mean varied between 324.34 and 2940 in 2009 - 2010 While the total length ranged between 14 cm and 65 cm with a mean varies from17.14 and 63.9, and weight ranged between 280g and 3700 g and corresponding mean varied between 339.38 and 3400 in 2010 - 2011.
