  Determination of Length-weight Relationship (LWR) of any commercially important fish is crucial to validate the wild stock level, to predict their wellbeing in the natural habitat and for various sustainable fishery management practices. Liza subviridis (Valenciennes) is noted to be highly abundant along the coast of Parangipettai, South east coast of India. Hence, the present study was aimed to establish Length-weight relationship and condition factor of Greenback mullet, Liza subviridis (Valenciennes) occurring in Vellar estuary, Parangipettai (lat. 11°30' N, long. 79°46' E) using least square method. To determine the actual relationship between length and weight of L. subviridis exponent coefficient or equilibrium constant (b) and relative condition factor (Kn) analysis were adopted. The females were found to be heavier than males at similar length. The equilibrium constant ‘b’ was found to be 2.7106 in males and 2.8927 in females. The corresponding parabolic representation for male was W = 0.0462L2.7106 and for female W = 0.0382L2.8927. The equilibrium constant did not obey the cube law as it deviated significantly from 3 in the case of males. The relative condition factor around 1 and little over it revealed the well-being of L. subviridis in Parangipettai waters.

  The feeding biology, spawning season, size at first maturity, sex ratio and fecundity of the commercially important lizardfish (Saurida undosquamis) were studied in Parangipettai waters of the southeast coast of India. Fishes formed the predominant food item. Diversity of the prey items showed maximum value (H’log 2-3.61±0.11) during the postmonsoon season and minimum during the monsoon season (2.89±0.17). The richness (1-lambda’) also showed a similar trend and varied from 0.81±0.13 (monsoon) to 0.91±0.01 (postmonsoon). The size at first maturity (50% incidence of mature fish) was 195 mm. But when the size at first maturity was calculated by adjusting the proportion of maturity percentages, the maturity size was found to be 140 mm. This method is advantageous from the point of view of fisheries management as this species can be exploited above 140 mm rather than above 195 mm. The gastrosomatic index was found maximum during postmonsoon and minimum during the monsoon season showing the inverse relationship between feeding and spawning. This species was found to spawn from August to January with a peak in November. The fecundity ranged from 19, 856 in a fish measuring from 20.1 cm in length (97 g) to 79,282 in a fish of 29 cm (290 g). The overall sex ratio (1:1.19) was found to deviate significantly from the expected 1:1 ratio. (χ2 = 19.1, p<0.005). Month- wise, it conformed to the expected 1:1 ratio during most of the months except January, June, September, November and December. Higher gonado-somatic index values observed during October-December suggested spawning activity during this period. This species is found to a total spawner in the Parangipettai waters.
