    Abstract

    The present study aimed to elucidate the length-weight relationship and growth parameters of the moonfish Mene maculata (Bloch and Schneider, 1801) along the Karnataka Coast. The species showed positive allometric growth with pooled ‘b’ value of 3.390 which is significantly greater than 3 (p<0.05) level. The “b” values of males (3.316) and females (3.440) showed significant difference from that of the indeterminates (2.90). The annual growth parameters estimated for moonfish off Karnataka Coast were: L∞ = 29.1 cm and K = 1.014 yr-1.
