Morphometric studies are essential to determine the growth form and growth rate of a species, which is very much important for proper exploitation and management of the population of a species. The length-weight relationship & relative condition factor were computed for the Anchovy Coilia dussumieri (Cuv. & Val.). A total of 154 individuals (124 males & 30 females) were used for the study. The ‘b’ value shows significant correlation between length & weight of fish. The values obtained for mean weight by sex show that females were significantly (P
