Abstract

An analysis of the length-weight data of Herklotsichthys punctatus shows no significant difference between the sexes in the regression coefficient which is found to be very close to 3.0. The relative conditi<Mi in females appears to be influenced both by the feeding intensity and the onset oi maturity whereas in males an improvement in the condition factor coincides with the attainment of maturity.
