    • Abstract


      One hundred mature specimens ofP. chilinoides collected from the Badiyar gaad, a tributary of the river Alaknanda were examined for fecundity. The fish weight, ovary weight, and fecundity ranged from 25–115 g, 2·1–14·35 g, and 2135–7974 respectively. The ovary weight was found from 8·4 to 16·34% of the body weight. The relationships between fecundity and total length and weight of fish, fecundity and length, weight and volume of ovary, fish length-ovary weight, and fish weight-ovary weight were found to be of linear form.
