The length-weight relationship of Harpadon nehereus was analyzed. Samples were collected from November 2016 to January 2017, in Juata and Amal at Tarakan, North Borneo, Indonesia. The total length measured using a ruler scale 1mm. The total weight measured using a digital platform scales with an accuracy of 1 gr. The length-weight equation, based on 600 unsexed individuals, was W = 0.006 * L2.59 at Juata and W = 0.005 * L3.00 at Amal where W is the total weight (g) and L is the total length (cm). In general the size of fish in Juata is greater than fish in Amal, but fish in Amal are with more fat. The t-test results in both sites showed that Nomei growth was isometric (α = 0.05). A coefficient of determination value of the length-weight relationship in Juata and Amal has 0.93 and 0.88 respectively.
