Length-weight relationships (LWRs) for three cyprinids (Laubuka laubuca, Salmostoma phulo and Esomus danricus) collected seasonally from May 2016 to January 2017 along the lower Brahmaputra drainage in Assam (Northeast India), using fishing gears [cast nets: 2.5 m, 10–15 mm mesh size; gillnets: 30 × 0.9 m, 18–20 mm mesh size], were estimated. The ‘b’ values in the LWRs were 3.46 for L. laubuca, 2.98 for S. phulo and 3.13 for E. danricus, respectively.
