The data of length and weight of required fishes were collected on monthly basis, using standard method given in literatures. After the collection of length-weight data of, Ctenopharyngodon idella, Cyprinus carpio (Lin.), Hypophthalmichthys molitrix (val.) Tilapia mossambica (Pet) following observations were derived.
