A. Passoupathy and V. Anandan.

The relationship between otolith length and total length of two sciaenid fishes Kathala axillaris (Cuvier) and Otolithes ruber (Schneider), was studied statistically by the method of least squares and found that total length can be estimated from the otolith length in these fishes.
