Author(s): Wang T, Wang HS, Sun GW, Huang D, Shen JH

Abstract

Length–weight and length–length relationships are reported for 32 fish species belonging to seven families and 26 genera from the Tian-e-zhou Oxbow in the middle reach of Yangtze River, near Shishou City, China. The weight (W) - length (L) relationships were estimated using the logarithmic form of the equation W = aLb. The exponent b varied from 2.60 to 3.65 (mean ± SE: 3.12 ± 0.25). The 14 weight–length relationships, 13 length–length relationships, and seven maximum lengths are presented to FishBase for the first time.
