Summary

Evaluated were the length–weight relationships of six freshwater fish species caught in the Santa Cruz Reservoir in the semiarid region of Brazil: one Characidae, one Prochilodontidae, one Anostomidae, two Loricariidae and one Cichlidae, providing the first references of length–weight relationships and new maximum lengths for these species.
