P. J. Joslin
Abstract
Length - weight relationship, food and fecundity of the threadfin bream, , Nemipterus delagoae, collected from Tuticorin waters were studied. The length - weight relationship of N., delagoae, was estimated as Log W = -1.2418 + 2.4894 Log L (r = 0.9668). The major food items were crustaceans and fishes. The fecundity increased with increase in length and weight of the fish (745 to 5392).
