Length-weight relationship and other dimensional relationships of Metapenaeus monoceros (Fabricius).

G. Nandakumar

Based on the length and weight data of Metapenaeus monoceros (Fabricius) collected from trawl landings at Cochin Fuheriea Harbour during 1991-92, the relationship between total length and total weight and other
dimensional relationship have been worked out. These relationships are significantly different between males and females and hence, seperate equation for each sex is given in this account.
