Author(s): Muslim Muslim


The study of length-weight relationships and condition factors is a fundamental component of fisheries management. Notopterus notopterus (Pallas, 1769) is a fish species native to Indonesia. They are utilized as a side dish, in the culinary and snack industries, and as ornamental fish. This study aimed to analyze the length-weight relationship and condition factors of N. notopterus from the East Pedamaran Floodplain, Ogan Komering Ilir, South Sumatra, Indonesia. A total of 108 N. notopterus samples were used in this study. The results showed that the length-weight relationship of N. notopterus was negatively allometric, with the regression equation W = 0.0948.L2.2012 (R2 =0.5332). The condition factor value was 1.02, indicating that the N. notopterus population was in good condition. The data from this study are very useful for the sustainable management of N. notopterus in the future.
