Length Weight Relationship and Relative Condition Factor of Sebarau, Hampala macrolepidota (Van Hasselt) in Kenyir Lake, Malaysia

Mohammad Zaidi Zakaria, Jalal, K.C.A, and Ambak M.A

Abstract:
A study on length-weight relationship and relative condition lector of Sebarau, Hampala macrolepidota (Van Hasselt) was conducted at four main rivers and Dam site of Kenyir Lake, Malaysia from January 1997 to December, 1997. The overall length-weight relationship was In W = 2.884 In L - 4.216 or W = 0.0148 L2.884. The spawning periods, the length at maturity based on relative condition factor (Kn) and factors that might governed their spawning seasons have been analyzed and discussed. These might be one main spawning period that could occurred at this place probably February; the spawning period could be due to the North East Monsoon which bring heavy rain. The length at first maturity is found to be at 160 mm and their spawning season might be mostly related to the rainy seasons.
