Abstract

Length - weight relationships were estimated for 18 Red Sea immigrant fish species from the eastern Mediterranean coasts of Turkey. The values of the exponent b in the length-weight regression (W=aL(b)) ranged between 2.482 and 3.355. The median value was 3.018 and 50% of the values ranged between 2.835 and 3.121.
