Özet

In this study, length-weight relationships (LWRs) of 8 endemic fish species to Anatolia from Pseudophoxinus genus belonging to Cyprinidae family (P. alii, P. anatolicus, P. antalyae, P. burduricus, P. crassus, P. hittitorum, P. fahrettini, P. meandricus) are presented. To this end, a total of 481 individuals was examined. The slope "b" values varied between 2.793 (P. anatolicus) and 3.742 (P. meandricus). The slope (b) of the LWRs indicated positive allometry in all species with the exception of P. anatolicus, which indicated negative allometry.
