Abstract

The results of long-term observations on changes in the hepatosomatic index of burbot in the Lower Ob basin are presented. The dynamics of this index are considered as dependent on fish sex, stage of gonad maturity, period of reproductive cycle, body damage or abnormalities, and feeding intensity.
