Abstract

Length-weight relationship parameters were presented for 26 fish species from the Gallipoli peninsula, Turkey. Samples were caught in depths between 0-400 m by longline between January 2012 and January 2013. The sample sizes, minimum and maximum lengths and weights, length-weight relationships, SE (b), R-2 and growth type were summarized. The values of the exponent b in the length-weight relationship W = aL(b) ranged from 2.522 to 3.336 and the median value was 2.899 (+/- SE = 0.043).
