Abstract

The regression coefficients of length-weight relationships of males and females of S. canaliculatus are not significantly different and therefore a common regression is recommended. The regression coefficient does not significantly depart from 3. The spawning season is from November to February in the Gulf of Mannar. The female attains first maturity at about 177 mm length. Fecundity varies from 33,711 to 284,516 and bears good correlation with ovary weight.
