Abstract
The present study, a total of 180 Luciobarbus capito was collected for growth and feeding characteristics 2016 at the Shahid Rajaei dam- Sari, Iran. Fish length to weight relationship was w= 0.0015*L2.888 showed negative allometric growth pattern. The Bertalanfy growth equation was as Lt = 138.6 [1-e-0.1 (t + 0.2)] in which L∞ =138.6 cm and k=0.1. Relative Length of Gut was 1.8 ± 0.5, which indicated the relatively herbivorous diet as a whole. Fishes -4 years old (sub-adult) with RLG= 2.4 ± 0.1 had herbivorous diet and with RLG= 1.2 ± 0.6 tended to omnivorous behavior. The results showed that this species had not specific nutrition, and generally fed on plant and macrophyta; meat diet included fish Carassius gibelio. According to the biological characteristics of this species, there is a high potential in inland waters and due to the suitable ecological conditions for this species, it was concluded that the use of strategies to protect the species in the Caspian Sea watershed and fisheries breeding and rearing should be a priority.
