K. Sujatha, K. V. L. Shrikanya Rao and P. Padmavathi
The length-weight relationship (LWR) was estimated adopting the exponential equation W = a Lb for four species of groupers belonging to the genus Epinephelus Bloch, 1793 in the catches landed at Visakhapatnam, east coast of India. The LWR was worked out as W =
0.0000212 L2.8425 for E. epistictus, W = 0.00002395 L2.9355 for E. latifasciatus, W = 0.00001461 L3.2676 for E. magniscuttis and W = 0.00001602 L3.1719 for E. radiatus.
