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), 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… CONTINUE READING
