Abstract: The fishes of family Tetraodontidae were collected from the trawl, trammel net, shore seine and hook and line catches of Visakhapatnam (lat 17º39´N; long 83º14´E) from January 2009 to December 2011. Of the 15 species, a total of 2751 specimens belonging to ten species, regularly represented in the catches of this region, were collected for length frequency distribution and length-weight relationship (LWR) studies. From LWR estimates b value varied from 2.8113 to 3.0223. These studies on length frequency and LWR for Arothron immaculatus, A. stellatus, Chelonodon patoca, Lagocephalus lagocephalus, L. guentheri, L. inermis, L. lunaris, L. sceleratus, Takifugu oblongus and Torquigener hypselogeneion has been estimated for the first time from Indian waters.
