Two extensions of stochastic logistic model for fish growth have been examined. The basic features of a logistic growth rate are deeply influenced by the carrying capacity of the system and the changes are periodical with time. Introduction of a new parameter , enlarges the scope of investing the growthof different fish species. For rapid growth lying between 1 and 2 and for slowly growing.
