This study was conducted to analyze some useful morphometric parameters of different specimen of Pampus argenteus of family Stromateidae in order to analyze their significance in systematics. A total of 72 samples of this species ranging in size from 13 cm to 28.5 cm in total length were collected from the fish landing centres of Mon Coastal Areas during the period from June 2018 to December 2018. About 13 morphometric characters were analyzed during this study. The relationship between variables observed that negative correlation between total length and other body parts (b<1) except head length and pre and post orbital length.
