Abstract

During present study total 58 specimens of Mahseer (Tor tor) from River Narmada were studied for morphometric and meristic characteristics. Interrelationship among the morphometric and meristic characteristics were observed. The morphometric characters showed a proportional positive growth with the increasing length of the fish. The regression coefficient (b) of variable parameters (Y) on total length (X) showed that growth rate with respect to total length was maximum in case of weight (b = 3.113) and lowest in mouth tip to operculum top (b = 0.957).The correlation coefficient (r) was found positive for different morphometric parameters with respect of total length. In case of morphometric parameters proportional positive growth with increasing length of the fish was recorded during the present study
