Length-weight relationships were analysed for five commercially important freshwater fishes, namely, Bangana diplostoma (Heckel, 1838), Schizopyge niger (Heckel, 1838), Schizothorax curvifrons (Heckel, 1838), Schizothorax plagiostomus (Heckel, 1838) and Glyptosternon reticulatum (McClelland, 1842) from different water bodies in the Kashmir Valley, India. A total of 610 samples were collected between October 2013 and May 2015 using various indigenous cast nets. Of these five species, Schizopyge niger has a new maximum length record for the FishBase LWR database. © 2016 Blackwell Verlag GmbH. Source

Length-weight relationships (LWRs) were evaluated for Badis badis (n = 25), Sperata seenghala (n = 26), Labeo gonius (n = 34), Rasbora rasbora (n = 30), Bagarius bagarius (n = 24), Gagata cenia (n = 27), Glyptothorax stoliczkae (n = 24) and Channa orientalis (n = 28) from the Ravi River tributary in North India. Altogether 218 samples of eight species were obtained between May and November 2014 using cast nets and gill nets. LWRs for these species were unknown to FishBase, and new maximum lengths were recorded for two of these species. © 2015 Blackwell Verlag GmbH. Source

This study provides the first report of length-weight relationships (LWRs) for two fish species, Glyptothorax kashmirensis and Crossocheilus diplochilus, collected from the Poonch River, one of the lesser tributaries to the Indus basin in India. New maximum length records are reported for both species. © 2015 Blackwell Verlag GmbH. Source

This paper provides length-weight relationships (LWRs) for four freshwater cyprinid fish species, namely Barilius bendelisis (Hamilton, 1807), Bangana dero (Hamilton, 1807), Chagunius chagunio (Hamilton, 1807) and Labeo dyocheilus (McClelland, 1839) from the Kosi River, a tributary of the River Ganga in northern India. Altogether 848 specimens were caught bimonthly (for B. bendelisis) and quarterly for the other three species between March 2013 and December 2014 using cast nets (9 m length, 9 m width and 1/2 cm mesh size). LWRs for two of the four species (B. dero and C. chagunio) are recorded for the first time. The present study results will be useful for fishery researchers, management and conservation in this least-explored tributary of the Ganga River Basin. © 2016 Blackwell Verlag GmbH. Source
