Abstract : The weight-length relationship and the condition factor have got significant role in fishery management. This study was conducted to determine length-weight relationship and Fultonâ€™s condition factor (K) for Hemiculter leucisculus in Anzali Wetland of Iran. For this purpose, 85 specimens of Sawbelly were caught from Anzali Wetland on September, 2014 using electrofishing. Fish were fixed in 4% Formalin and transported to the laboratory. Fish were digitally weighted at 0.1 g and the total length and Standard length were obtained using ImageJ software. The total lengths of the sampled fish ranged between 8.6 cm and 16.6 cm, with corresponding standard lengths of 7.8 cm minimum and 14.4 cm maximum. Fish weights ranged between 9 g and 77.04 g. The parameter b was 3.21 in Anzali Wetland. Also, the correlation coefficient (r2) was calculated from the data to be equal to 0.98. Also, Mean condition factor of fish was found to be 1.01. The results of this study can be useful for biologists and fishery managers.
