Length-weight relationships of three endemic fish species of the Arabian Peninsula
Length-weight relationships (LWRs) were evaluated for three endemic fish species collected from the north and south of inland waters of Oman in 2022 including Garra sindhae, G. smartae, and Oxyurichthys omanensis by using foldable shrimp and crab fishing traps (mesh size of 3*3mm) and hand nets (mesh size of 3*3mm). The parameter of b for all three species was between the estimated ranges of 2.5-3.5 as proposed for different other fish species, and there was high and significant coefficient of determination for all three species (0.87-0.984).
