  Age and growth of Labeo bata (Ham.) was studied by the analysis of annuli found on the scale and by length-frequency distribution. The fish attained lengths of , , , , , and mm at the end of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th years of life respectively. The increase in length of scale bears a constant relationship with the increase in length of fish, and regression Cited by: 4. Among the cultivable freshwater prawns, M. rosenbergii, the giant river prawn completely dominated the commercial freshwater prawn culture due to its superior cultivable attributes such as very fast growth, high market demand, hardiness, euryhaline nature and its compatibility to grow with cultivable fin-fishes such as Indian major carps. Fishes in the eastern part of the Caspian Sea experience a higher temperature and salinity, compared to those in the western part. This study was conducted on 66 specimens of female kutum, Rutilus kutum, from a migratory population to Gorgan-Rud River during March-May to compare it with the most studied western populations and to study the effects of these ecological factors on biology of kutum.

  Age, growth, population structure and reproductive biology of a vulnerable, freshwater mullet, Rhinomugil corsula (Hamilton, ) was studied from a perennial river of Central India between January and December Maximum seven annual rings were found and used to assess growth data in the samples representing 0 to +7 year classes. The annual increment in length was calculated Cited by: 2.
