Analysis of Length-Weight Relationship and Condition Factor of Tor Putitora (Hamilton) and Labeo Dero (Hamilton) From Nangal Wetland, Punjab, India

Y. K. Rawal, Amandeep Kaur, Apneet Kaur

The Nangal dam has been constructed across the river Sutlej at Nangal (Punjab) that led to the development of a lake called as Nangal Lake, which has recently been declared as wetland of National importance. The present investigation has been designed to estimate length-weight relationship and condition factor for two fish species i.e. Tor putitora (Hamilton) and Labeo dero Hamilton collected from Nangal wetland. The correlation coefficient (r) was found to be 0.965 (p<0.01) for both the fish species indicating a direct linear relationship. In LWR (W=aLb) values of exponent b and condition factor was observed to be 2.7; 2.9 and 0.922; 1.183 for Tor putitora (Hamilton) and Labeo dero (Hamilton) respectively.
