A biometric study was conducted on a benthic fish of the family Congridae, the European conger eel (Conger conger Linnaeus, 1758), from the western coasts of Algeria, from Béni-Saf. This study was carried out due to the total absence of reliable and exploitable information concerning the morphometric characteristics of this fish along the Algerian coast. It was based on statistical processing of 18 morphometric variables measured on each sampled fish. the comparison between months using univariate ANOVA and multivariate MANOVA statistical tests showed significant differences in morphometric variables measured on the European conger eel (Conger conger). However, regarding the sex factor, no significant differences were observed between males and females.
