Length–weight relationships were estimated for 14 species belonging to 13 fish families from the Suer River estuary, Korea. These 14 species are: Callionymus valenciennei, Konosirus punctatus, Conger myriaster, Cynoglossus joyneri, Tribolodon hakonensis, Thryssa hamiltonii, Acanthogobius flavimanus, Paratrypauchen microcephalus, Hexagrammos agrammus, Nuchequula nuchalis, Pseudopleuronectes yokohamae, Pennahia argentata, Sillago japonica and Takifugu niphobles. Between April 2009 and January 2010, samples were caught by commercial trawl net at depths of <20 m. Estimates for parameter b of the length–weight relationship (W = aLb) ranged between 2.510 and 3.149.
