Abstract

Clarias gariepinus were sampled from eight water bodies in southern Africa between 1973 and 1975. Aging results indicate a similar growth pattern for most areas with a near linear age-length relationship. Between year growth compensation was found to be present in Lakes Kyle and Mcllwaine in Zimbabwe, and to a lesser extent in Hardap Dam, South West Africa, but not present in Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe.
