The paper deals with the Length-weight relationship and ponderal index of Cyprinus Carpio in Govindgarh Lake, Rewa (M.P), during the period July 2011 to June 2012. The investigation is the length-weight and condition factor of six hundred and nineteen adult Cyprinus Carpio fishes in Govindgarh Lake, Rewa were investigated. The value of regression coefficient for the length-weight relationship was calculated to be 2.8372. This suggests that the growth forms in the entire specimen sampled because are very close to 3 hence, it can be said that undertaken fishes were followed to be cube law. Similar strong positive (P < 0.001) correlation coefficient r = 0.99 was found during the present study.This suggests that the two variables (Length & Weight) are highly correlated. In the present study maximum value of ponderal index were found during summer season. The high value during summer season may be attributed to active metabolic activities, sufficient availability of food, and maturity time of gonads and preparatory period of pre-spawning.
