The present investigation deals with the fecundity study of Barilius bendelisis collected from the river Manas. Relationship of fecundity with body weight (TW), total length (TL), ovary length (OL) and ovary weight (OW) was calculated and found to be linear. The value of correlation coefficient (r) was estimated to be 0.72, 0.61, 0.042 and 0.807 respectively for the above relationships. As indicated by the value of ‘r’ (0.807), the fecundity is more closely related to ovary weight and hence the ovary weight may be a better index of fecundity compared to the other studied parameters.
