A total of 1,659 specimens of spotted scat were collected from commercial landings in Mandapam along Gulf of Mannar for studying biometry, length-weight relationship and sexual dimorphism. Biometry was carried out to analyse the growth rate of body parts in relation to the standard length. Fourteen morphometric characteristics were examined. The study revealed that the fastest growth rate was in depth of the body followed by pre-dorsal and pre-anal length and lowest in the eye diameter. The… CONTINUE READING
