Summary

Weight–length relationships are presented for 60 fish species captured from Izmir Bay, Central Aegean Sea. Samples were collected using bottom trawls (mesh sizes 24 mm at stretched cod-end). The b values W = aLb showed a mean value of 3.027 (SE = ±0.03) and more than 50% of the values ranged between 2.912 and 3.189. One species, Cepola macrophthalma, showed strong negative allometric growth.
