The present investigation deals with the assessment of fecundity and gonadosomatic index (GSI) of Schizothorax plagiostomus collected from the river Jhelum, Kashmir. The mean value of fecundity was estimated as 14599 (SD 9219.7) eggs with a mean total length of 34.340 (SD 6.86) and a mean total body weight of 440.60 (SD267.62). The relationship of fecundity with other parameters such as total length, total weight, ovary length and ovary weight were found to be linear and the value of correlation coefficient ® was 0.965, 0.961, 0.933 and 0.972 respectively. The highest value of GSI was recorded in the month of May 12.56 (SD1.81).
