Abstract: The length- weight relationship and morphometric study on the squid, Loligo duvauceli (d’Orbigny) is reported from Mumbai waters. The regression coefficient between the sexes was found to be not significant at 1% level. The ‘b’ value differed from the ideal cube law of ‘3’as is with the case of length- weight relationship studied on this species elsewhere. The morphometric characters indicated high degree of correlation among the compared characters. The study substantiated further that the length-weight relationship of squids do not follow ideal cube law. The morphometric characters compared here would be very useful for comparison with the same species in other geographical locations.
