Abstract

A study was conducted to assess the meristic and morphorlogical features, variation in strain and the length-weight relationship of 60 fish samples of Erpetoichthys calabaricus inhabiting the wetland of Ogun waterside Local Government area, Ogun state, Nigeria. Fish samples were collected with artisanal gears (bamboo traps) during January and February, 2011. Twenty four of the samples were female while thirty six were male. The estimated b value (allometry coefficient) of the equation W=aLb ranged between 2.127 and 2.535 for the male and combined sex while the estimated b value (isometric coefficient) is 3.04 for female. The fish samples have no variation in strain. The coefficient of relationship was highly close to (+1). There is possibility of this specie of fish as an ornamental fish.
