Length-weight relationships (LWR) and condition factors of Schizothorax richardsonii (Gray, 1832) influenced by artificial and natural feeding
Shyam S Kunjwal, Anju Thapliyal
The present study reports the fish length and fish weight. Length- weight relationship (LWR) is a most diagnostic indication of growth parameter of the fish. Length-weight relationship plays a vital role in fishery. Asela is a phytophagus fish and has developed a special mouth adapted to scraping attached algae from the surface of stones. Therefore the present investigation attempted to compare the length and weight relationship and condition factor of Schizothorax richardsonii, reared with artificial feeding and natural periphyton based feeding. On the basis of this parameter, growth parameter, growth performance of the fish was evaluated for both type of feeding practice & the result obtained through this study will be highly helpful with the objective of evaluating the growth performance of snow fish periphytic natural feeding and to work out its cost benefit.
