Abstract: We investigated the length–weight relationships (LWRs) for Sillago vincenti McKay, 1980, Triacanthus nieuhofii Bleeker, 1852 and Terapon puta Cuvier, 1829 from the Chilika lagoon in India. Sampling was conducted in central sector of the Chilika from April to November of 2017. Specimens were caught in mono-filament gill nets of mesh size 28-36 mm and fixed set nets of mesh size 16-24 mm. From LWR estimation, the determined intercept (a value) and slope (b value) were found to be 0.007 and 3.039 for Sillago vincenti, 0.010 and 2.997 for Triacanthus nieuhofii and 0.008 and 3.156 for Terapon puta. The relationships between length and weight in all three species were highly correlated (p <0.05).
