Abstract


This work had as objective to determine growth parameters and their correlations from ages 60 to 240 days in the carp. The experiment used 65 fishes, 31 males and 34 females, from the same hatch and raised in the same environmental conditions. There were no differences (P > 0.05) between sexes for all studied traits. The relationship between body weight x height and body weight x head length presented isometric growth for both sexes. Moderate to high correlations (P < 0.01) were found between traits, the exceptions were for body length at 60 days with body length, body heigth and head at 240 days, which presented small correlations (P < 0.05).
