Özet

Length-weight relationships were estimated for Citharus linguatula, Arnoglossus kessleri, Arnoglossus laterna, Arnoglossus thori, Buglossidium luteum, Microchirus variegatus and Solea solea sampled from Izmir Bay, Aegean Sea, Turkey. The slopes (b) of the length-weight relationship ranged between 2.160 and 3.416 with a mean of 2.790. Negative allometry was determined for A. kessleri, A. thori, S. solea and B. luteum while positive allometry was present for C linguatula, A. laterna and M. variegatus.
