Abstract

Background. Even though Serranus cabrilla has been a by-catch species in trawling operations, it is now becoming an economically important fish species on the Turkish Coast of Aegean Sea, because of its low market price. For an efficient fisheries management of the stocks it is important to know important biological parameters of the commercially exploited species. Therefore the aim of this study was to obtain necessary growth-and reproductive characteristics of comber representing the local population of this fish in the study area.
