Ravi, Raghunath and Manisseri, Mary K and Kuriakose, Somy (2008) Relationship between morphometric characteristics and fecundity of Portunus pelagicus (Linnaeus, 1758). Journal of the Marine Biological Association of India, 50 (2). pp. 217-220.
The relationship of various morphometric characteristics, carapace width, carapace length, body weight, abdomen width, propodus length and propodus height with fecundity in Portunus pelagicus was investigated using linear regression analysis. All the morphometric characteristics studied showed positive correlation with fecundity and the degree of relationship varied considerably. Among these, the carapace width was found to be the most ideal morphometric character to predict the fecundity of P. pelagicus.
