A note on the length-weight relationship in dolphin fish, Coryphaena hippurus L.

A. Chatterji, Z.A. Ansari


Length-weight relationship in Coryphaena hippurus almost follows the cube law and the weight of the fish increases more than the square of the length. The value of 'b' was higher in males as compared to females. The equations for length-weight relationship were: Log W = -4.987 + 2.114 Log L for females, Log W = -4.177 + 2.510 Log L for males and Log W = -4.926 + 2.894 Log L for combined sexes
