Abstract

In length frequency analysis, model were traced for period of two years and the growth was found to be 55 and 95 mm for I and 11 years respectively. Growth determined by months mode curve indicated that T. telescopium can grow up to 62, 85 and 110 mm in the I, II and III year respectively Growth assessed by probability plot was found to be upto 23,57.5, 91 and 108 mm in the 0, I II and III year respectively. Integrated method showed growth rates of 60, 92 and 111.6 mm respectively in the I, II and III year of life. Employing von Bertalanffy's growth equation It was found that it can grow up to 57.5, 91 and 108 mm respectively in the I, II and III year of life. The empirical length at different ages found by von Bertalanffy's growth equation showed general agreement with the growth estimates others.
