|Abstract:||Length–weight relationship (LWR) of an endemic fish, velvet leatherjacket, Lalmohania velutina (Hutchins, 1994) inhabiting Gulf of Mannar (GoM), southeast coast of India was determined during the present study. A total of 131 individuals (male n = 84; females n = 47) were collected from bycatch of shore seines in GoM and used for establishing LWR of this endemic species. The calculated value for parameter 'b' of LWRs were 2.5189, 2.6174 and 2.5614 for male, female and for total individuals (pooled), respectively. Maximum total length (TL) recorded for a female individual (TLmax = 13.4 cm) is the new report of maximum TL in L. velutina. The present study is the first reference on the length-weight relationship and the new maximum length recorded for L. velutina.|
