The condition factor, length-weight relationship and abundance of Ilisha africana from Nkoro River in the Niger Delta area of Nigeria was studied for a period of one year (January-December 2008). From a sample size of 113 specimens, K value was 0.999 and the exponential equation was Wt=0.05998 (TL)^2.719, indicating an isometric growth pattern. The highest catch was recorded in February (1.61), followed by March (1.00), January (0.90), December (0.60) and June (0.10). April, May, July, August… Expand
