dc.description.abstractIn the present study fifteen morphometric characters of Indian mackerel, Rastrelliger ‎kanagurta were studied. Collections were made from three fish harbors, Kund Malir, ‎Sonmiani and Gadani, Baluchistan, Pakistan. The morphometric lengths (total length, ‎fork length, standard length, head length, pre-dorsal fin length, pre-orbital length, eye ‎diameter, lower-jaw length, pre-anal fin length, head depth, pectoral fin length, pelvic fin ‎length, greatest depth and pre-pelvic fin length and pre-pectoral fin length) were recorded ‎and the descriptive statistical parameters and correlation coefficient (r) were analysis ‎with independent variable (total length) and dependent variable (other morphometric ‎parameters). The result shows that morphometric parameters are highly correlated to ‎total length. Coefficient of correlation (r) indicated highest positive correlation between ‎total length and forked length (r = 0.961, r = 0.928 and r = 0.919 at Kund Malir, ‎Sonmiani and Gadani, respectively).The maximum total lengths of R. kanagurta ‎recorded in the present study were 26.1 cm at Kund Malir, 26.3 cm at Sonmiani and 29.0 ‎cm at Gadani. This study provides knowledge to the biologists regarding morphometric ‎characters of Indian mackerel, Rastrelliger kanagurta from the fish harbors of ‎Baluchistan to help in planning of conservation strategies for this fish species.‎
