In the present study, the Gonadosomatic index and Hepatosomatic index of common carp (Cyprinus carpio var. communis) broodstock was evaluated. Both sexes of two different age groups (virgin and 1+ year) were selected for the study. It was observed that all the physico-chemical conditions were optimum. The GSI and HSI values were maximum during March which is supposed to be the spawning season of common carp in India. It was also reported that GSI and HSI had a significant (p<0.05) inverse relationship. So, present study shows that both GSI and HSI can be used as an indicator of maturity and spawning season of common carp.
