    • Abstract

       

      The fecundity ranges from 2,200 in a specimen of 12·1 cm TL to 33,873 in a specimen of 22·3 cm TL. The relationship between fecundity and total length is curvilinear and is expressed as: logF = 0·55024 + 2·83086 logL. When the calculated fecundity at corresponding length is calculated from equations for the Guntur (16·18 N, 80·29 E) and Aligarh (27·54 N, 78·06 E) samples, it is observed that in all length groups from Aligarh, the fecundity is less.
