Abstract

The length-weight relationship of Leiognathus bindus can be described by the equation log W = —4.77709 + 2.96182 log L. The length at first maturity is estimated as 80 mm. This species is a fractional spawner and appears to release the ova in at least two spawning acts during the course of one year; it appears to spawn in almost all months, with a peak during December-February. Based on lengthfrequency distribution, the species attain 65 and 90 nrni at the completion of first and second year respectively.
